In this sequel to Clara's Story . . .
After Claire buys a Brooklyn brownstone, she is forced to take a deadly dull job in her father's bank, instead of in the art world she loves. Her nutty family is as fractured as ever, and she can't forget her whirlwind romance in Italy with the charming, but quirky artist, Isabelle. Out of the blue, Isabelle arrives in New York, turning Claire's world—and heart—upside down. Topsy turvy life with Isabelle is filled with enticing glimpses of a happy future and with jumbled questions. Will Isabelle stay or be swallowed up in her world across the pond—again? And can Claire summon the sheer guts she needs to face the demons of her past, embrace the present, and reach for the sky?

What reviewers have to say . . .
This book is well written, follows on from Clara’s Story and continues with the lives of Isabelle and Claire. It’s a bit darker than the first book and we finally get to hear all of Claire’s and Isabelle’s secrets. Secrets that have molded both women into the women they’ve become. Both women now have something to fight for, their love for one another.
We have the same characters as the first book and some new ones to help progress the story along. All these characters are multidimensional and interact well together. All are real and true to life. I’ve certainly met some like them myself. - Terry's Lesfic Reviews
