Eternity Springs Series, Book 3
Borrow Borrow Borrow
The healing magic of Eternity Springs continues in this novel in Emily March's vibrant series about a very special town and the people who need it most.

Married for more than twenty years, and with her children out of the nest, Ali Timberlake has come to Eternity Springs alone. She's looking for answers to heartbreaking questions and searching for something that's missing deep within herself. Taking a lease on the Bristlecone Café in pursuit of a lifelong dream, Ali feels revitalized as she becomes part of this charming mountain town. But a big piece of her is still back in Denver with her husband, Mac, a successful judge—and a man who isn't going to let the woman he loves leave without a fight.
When Mac shows up in Eternity Springs—sexy, seductive, and determined to win his wife back—he experiences the wonder of the place that has given Ali such feelings of happiness and belonging. He wants that for her, but even more, he wants that with her. Ali has found a special place for her heart. But is there still enough room left in that heart for him?

    Two years later

    In the bedroom she shared with her husband, Ali Timberlake tucked her makeup case neatly into her suitcase, then zipped it shut just as her husband emerged from his closet, a duffel bag in one hand. "Are you sure about this, honey?" Mac asked, his brow knitted with concern. "We can still change the plan."

    "Right," Ali replied, her tone dry. "And for the rest of my life I'll get to listen to Stephen and Chase talk about the one that got away."

    "Hey, we can go fishing in Alaska another—"

    Ali interrupted. "No, it's okay. I'm glad you're getting to go. It's a minor miracle that your schedule and those of the boys meshed this time. If Caitlin wanted you with her, that would be different, but she's flexing her wings and feeling independent and ready to take on Vanderbilt University."

    Her lips twisted as she added, "Frankly, I'm not sure she really wants me to go with her to Nashville. We haven't exactly been getting along very well lately."

    Her husband tossed his duffel onto their bed, then gave Ali a rueful look. "She did tell me you packed her toothbrush three days ago. She thinks you can't wait for her to go."

    "After the way she's been acting lately, can you blame me?"

    "Now, sweetheart."

    "Oh, I know." Ali shrugged and waved her hand in a dismissive gesture. "She's emotional. I'm emotional. It's not every day that your youngest child and only daughter goes off to college for the first time."

    "Exactly." Mac grimaced and rubbed the back of his neck. "That's why I think I should be there. The boys could go to Alaska without me. No reason why they couldn't."

    He truly appeared torn, so Ali swallowed her own misgivings and pasted on a smile. "Actually, there is. This is a father-son trip. You can't very well have a ?father-son trip if the father is a no-show. You went with me and Cait to orientation, and that was the ?important trip. This will be fun for me and Caitlin. An August road trip. A mother-daughter adventure. We'll do just fine."

    He gave her a long, searching look, then nodded. "Okay. If you're sure."

    "I'm sure." She smiled with a brightness she didn't feel. "Now I'd better get downstairs and see to breakfast."

    "Leave your suitcase. I'll carry it down when I come."

    "Thanks."

    Ali tried to shake off her melancholy as she made her way downstairs to prepare a meal for her family. She wanted today's breakfast to be extra special since this was Caitlin's big day, the day she flew out of the nest and off to college. It was also the first time in months that the entire family would sit down to a meal together and likely the last meal they'd all share until Thanksgiving.

    Throughout the children's lives, Ali had made the family supper a big deal. It was the Timberlake family together time, and everyone was expected to make a real effort to be there. Since Mac had worked at her father's firm while the kids were growing up, she had invoked the boss's daughter privilege in that respect alone. Mac had rarely missed dinner with the family. That had changed since he took the seat on the bench, but by then the crucial years were behind them, the precedent had been set. Their family was stronger because of it.

    After today, family meals would be few and far between.

    Ali briefly closed her eyes. Don't go there.

    She'd have the kids set the table in the dining room and make it a celebration. Maybe even use her mother's china. The kids would complain about having to hand-wash the dishes, but if you didn't go to the trouble to make an occasion an occasion, it became just one more meal in a lifetime of...

Reviews-
  • Publisher's Weekly

    Starred review from March 28, 2011
    March's easy-to-love third Eternity Springs contemporary (after Hummingbird Lake) introduces empty-nesters Ali and Mac Timberlake, who must come to terms with the romantic game-changers of career success and grown children. March's flair for pleasingly imperfect characters and the stomach-tightening scenes of marital discord easily pull readers into the richly imagined world of Eternity Springs, Colo., where Ali decamps for a trial separation. With judge Mac's grueling docket keeping him back in Denver, Ali's adopted community begins to take center stage in her life. As the two try to reconcile, sensual scenes build on their years of experience and affection to create both heat and humor ("Mac collapsed on top of Ali... and thanked the Good Lord that he hadn't had a heart attack"). Readers will be breathless as Eternity Springs works its romantic magic once again.

  • Christina Dodd

  • -Publisher's Weekly, starred review "Readers will be breathless as Eternity Springs works its romantic magic once again."
