Julianne has been living a life without hope, bogged down by her relationship and tormented by the past. After ten years of exodus, she returns to her hometown in rural Vermont where she is forced to confront her childhood memories and the decisions that have formed herself and her life. While there, she re-encounters several ghosts from her past, one of which leaves an indelible mark on her heart and stirs into motion events with far reaching consequences. The last person Julianne expects to see on the day she flies back to attend her stepmother's funeral is John, her high school boyfriend. He deftly places himself back into her thoughts and life, despite having a life of his own. Julianne's hidden emotions slowly unveil themselves which lead to the crumbling of her world as she is forced to reevaluate her decisions, actions and the course her life is taking. When she discovers her husband has harbored a horrible secret she must decide right from wrong again and whether she will maintain the marriage. Slowly, the reader learns her history, the reasons why she disappeared from her town, the decisions she made that have tormented her and the outcome of two former lovers. Far From This Present Life is the story of the indelible power of love, preserving hope through trial and difficulties, balancing what is morally right and wrong, the sanctity of marriage and the incredible unpredictability of life.
