In 1944, Muriel discarded her friendship with Sanna and concocted a self-centered plot, which gave her what she wanted: Derek VanHousen. That Sanna and Derek were all but publicly engaged didn't deter Muriel. Blindly she plunged into the murky waters of self-gratification, latching on to everything but a clean conscience and peace of mind. Now it is 1964 and Sanna is returning to Dutchville. With his first-love walking the same streets again, will Derek remain true to his wife? Muriel has a tough row ahead if she's going to make what she knows to be fiction (a happy VanHousen marriage) seem real enough to fool Sanna. Muriel has a two-pronged problem: 1) keeping face in a town that remembers her deviousness, and 2) resurrecting the vivacious Young Muriel who snagged her best friend's true love. Life is in disarray for the VanHousen family-while Sanna is as enticing as ever. Sometimes you just can't escape shadows, even shifting shadows ...
