“The wound is the place where the light enters you.” ~Rumi
Affected by her parents’ highly publicized divorce, Isabel Amarra grows up isolated and alone, vowing to never repeat their mistakes. But when Jesse Cain enters her life, Isabel falls hopelessly in love with him. Every sadness she’s ever felt is washed away by his intensity and passion.
As time goes by and Isabel leaves her teenage years behind, her needs and perspectives change. Then she meets Alex Ailey, who shows her a love that is selfless and freeing.
Despite everything, Isabel fights to stay with Jesse, determined to hold on to what they once had—until she can no longer deny her true feelings.
But if Isabel lets go, can a second love ever be enough to make her forget her first.

When not listening to the voices in her head or spending late nights at the office, Christine can be seen shopping for shoes and purses, running a half marathon or spending time with her husband and three children in Chicago.
Christine is represented by Italia Gandolfo of Gandolfo Helin Literary Management.
