The way he spoke made Emily think there was also a slight pain in his voice. Another dead end in the conversation.
The first raindrops fell, and she checked her watch.
“I’d better be going. I’ll be back on Wednesday.”
Connor said his thanks before Emily turned to leave. She was startled, though, by Jack’s expression. The sadness stored from over twenty years was obvious in that moment. He must’ve heard their conversation, and she thought back on what had been said.
It was the surname. She was sure it would’ve pained Jack to know that his only son wasn’t carrying his surname. Emily blinked, fighting back tears.
“Jack,” she said, walking towards him. “I think you’d better return back inside. I’ll be back on Wednesday.”
The old man nodded and tried to stand up. Connor rushed to his side to help, and seeing the two next to each other, she was surprised by the resemblance between them.
When Connor Walsh, a business lawyer in London, receives news that his estranged father is terminally ill, he returns to Fermosa Bay, a little coastal town in Australia. With the memories of his childhood years tucked away in the back of his mind, he finds his father and kindergarten friends rallying around to remind him of the past. But he’s unprepared for the growing attraction he feels for Emily, and it doesn’t take long for Connor to feel regret that his life could have been so much different.
Emily Bradshaw has waited for over twenty years to see Connor again. And although he can’t remember her, let alone their first kiss, her childhood crush is still in full swing. Eager to pick up where they left off as children, she’s determined to enjoy the short time he is in Fermosa Bay, accepting her heart will break when he returns to his life in London.
Will the echoes of the past lure him into staying in Fermosa Bay?

Too short, Iris! You’re such a tease. ;^)
LOL – I take it you’re “hooked” 😉 Thanks for stopping by, Lisabet.
Right about too short. But the different last names adds to the mystery of why
Thank you, Jan. Different names was explained last week. Connor’s last name is his step-father’s name.
The contrast between their similar appearances and dissimilar last names is stark.
Thanks, Ed. Glad it came across ….
