Lauren still holds Alec in her heart, the boy she loved as a child and then as a teen. His Catholic mother had stopped him from dating a Protestant girl, but with Lauren’s recently published memoir about their story and the technology afforded by the Internet, she hopes to reconnect with her first love. Alec is a history professor, a man with a Desert Storm combat tour and an ugly divorce in his past. Alec is finally at a juncture where perhaps he can find his lost love. Lauren is still struggling to forgive herself for injuring her daughter, Liz, in a car accident years earlier. And Liz, now a well-adjusted college student, is intent on helping her mother meet another husband before she moves to New York to start her career. When Love Is Real is a heartwarming, contemporary love story filled with emotion and humor as the lives of Lauren, Alec, and Liz, and their families intertwine. The events of September 11, 2001 are woven into the fabric of this deeply gratifying novel—a story threaded with love, loss, war, attachment, and hope.
