Bargain Book Copy
One night can change a life. For eight-year-old Terry McQuinn, it was a snowy Christmas Eve on the coast of Maine, when Terry glimpsed a world he'd never seen before - a moneyed, "summer people's" world unknown to the son of a caretaker. Serenity Cottage was a place of beauty and privilege owned by the luminous Halworths - but in the blink of an eye, a tragic accident left the family in ruins. Now, thirty years later, Terry has devoted his life to putting distance between himself and his history. Determined not to follow in his father's humble footsteps, he became a high-flying Hollywood film exec. Banking six-plus figures as an agent with a Midas touch, Terry is the picture of success. But at what cost? Terry is finally called back to Maine by the death of his father - but in his father's workshop, Terry comes across a note that stops him cold: "Open Serenity for Christmas." No one has been in the house since that fateful night three decades earlier. Although Terry's first instinct is to leave it all behind, he soon discovers that Katherine Halworth is the new owner. Her imminent arrival triggers in Terry a rush of emotion spanning three decades, and offers him the chance to unravel finally the mysteries of love and fealty.
