Description
Can you have a passionate love affair in middle age like you did as a teenager? What if you had a second chance to be with your first love after 40 years? Would you take it? Kassandra DuBois thought she had gotten over her high school romance with Cameron Martin a lifetime ago; but a chance meeting with him changes her mind, stirring up long forgotten emotions, and the memory of a tragic secret she had spent years trying to forget. Her renewed liaison with Cameron brings this long ago scandal out into the forefront, threatening her relationships with her family, her friends, and the very life she has spent years building. "Because You're the First" is not only romance and suspense, but also in part a nostalgic journey back to 1972, and the world of that time, including the politics, the fashions, the trends, and the emerging attitudes regarding things such as feminism and sexual freedoms. It is also the story of a young woman finding herself, and asserting her autonomy and need for independence. It will return the reader who lived during the 1960s and1970s back to that time, and introduce the reader to the era who had not been yet born. When the story returns to present day, a middle aged Kassandra has to seriously evaluate her life. Is this man, this first love from her adolescence, a man she could spend a lifetime with now? "Because You're the First" says love can happen later in life, and can bring joy, as well as pain, and that self-discovery is possible at any age.
