Flannery Jansen has become somebody she never thought she'd be: married to a man who overshadows her, and defined by her roles as wife and mother. But when she is invited to her old university to speak about her writing, she sees a chance to return to a world she loved. And then she recognizes the name of the person chairing the event - Anne Arden. Suddenly Flannery is thrown back twenty years to the most intense love affair of her life.
On the other side of the world Anne is travelling for work. Recently out of a decades-long relationship, she feels adrift, betrayed by the life she thought she had and the choices she thought she'd made. As the weeks pass, her thoughts return to a woman she once knew, and the promise of seeing Flannery again begins to preoccupy her every thought.
Finally, in the place where they met and fell in love, Anne and Flannery are reunited.
Pages for Her is an exquisitely written story about the complexities of love, of memory, of disappointment. Clever, funny, and deeply moving, it explores how, even when life pulls us apart, some loves prove irresistible.
