Lucy is faced with a life-altering choice. But before she can make her decision, she must start her storyâtheir storyâat the very beginning.
Lucy and Gabe meet as seniors at Columbia University on a day that changes both of their lives forever. Together, they decide they want their lives to mean something, to matter. When they meet again a year later, it seems fatedâperhaps theyâll find lifeâs meaning in each other. But then Gabe becomes a photojournalist assigned to the Middle East and Lucy pursues a career in New York.

Their journey takes Lucy and Gabe continents apart, but never out of each otherâs hearts.
