A Foolish Consistency
By Andrea Weir
Sparks fly when Callie Winwood comes face-to-face with Will Tremaine, the man she fell in love with and thought she’d marry twenty-five years earlier. A chance encounter in a hospital emergency room reignites the feelings they have harbored for each other for more than two decades.
But their journey back to one another is anything but simple. In the two years since the death of his wife, Joanna, which he believes he caused, Will has devoted himself to caring for his young son and daughter.
As Will and Callie wrestle with their own personal histories of love and loss, they must also navigate the complex emotions of Will’s children, who still grieve for their mother. At the same time, they must struggle with Joanna’s family, who will do anything to avoid facing the truth about their own lives.
Callie and Will come together at last, but their happy ending is short-lived. When a scandal threatens to unravel their respective families, they put their children above all else and agree to separate for good. That is, until an unexpected ally intervenes on their behalf.
A Foolish Consistency explores the dynamics of families in crisis and the emotional damage wrought by unacknowledged fear and grief. Yet it is also a passionate love story and a testament to the power of hope, the importance of forgiveness, and, ultimately, the joy of redemption.
