When Jennifer’s husband Doug, a senior executive at Cantor Fitzgerald, died in the North Tower on September 11, 2001, she resigned herself to widowhood—certain she’d raise their two young children alone. But one year after Doug’s death, to her utter surprise and confusion, she met Derek Trulson, a handsome bachelor, at a Hamptons restaurant. Two great love stories in one, Between the Raindrops is the incredible tale of one woman’s struggle to find the strength and peace to keep on living—and loving.
Jennifer’s journey is both ordinary and extraordinary: A young woman utterly in love with her husband of six years, happily raising two children in their Central Park West apartment, suddenly finds herself alone. As she watches the North Tower fall on the news and feels her husband’s normally strong presence leave her, she realizes that this is the end of her life as a wife—she’s lost her romantic other half. Her husband Doug had loved her “enough for a lifetime,” as she says at his funeral, and she is grateful for their time together, never expecting to find love again. But fate intervenes and introduces her to Derek Trulson, a strikingly handsome, refreshingly upfront man, and as their courtship unfolds slowly, Jennifer learns how to navigate Derek’s relationships with her children, in-laws, and friends and rediscovers the happiness she’d lost.
Touching, poignant, and relatable, Between the Raindrops is one woman’s courageous journey toward finding love again—and a message of hope for women everywhere.
