Kate is struggling with a commitment to marriage with her beau, Rowan, even after four years of dating. For the first time in her life, she also knows that she won’t fully love until she confronts her past. It’s time to act. Told in alternating time periods, we find that from the tender age of fourteen, Kate and Jack fell in love, but never fell out. Today, Kate fears that her heart may still belong to Jack, the man who fathered their child, a little girl she gave up for adoption thirteen years ago. When the mistakes have been made, and the running is over, it’s time to face the truth. Can she travel to the place where it all began, to the one who shares her secret? Can the lost ever be found?
And Then I Found You gives new life to the phrase “inspired by a true story.” Patti bases her novel on a period in her family’s life and exposes the price of a selfless act.
