About the Book:

What if your first love was a for­bid­den one?

At twen­ty-three, Felice Cohen was, like oth­er recent col­lege grads, hes­i­tant about enter­ing the real world, with the added stress of com­ing out in the ear­ly nineties. Focused on how to land a full-time posi­tion as a writer, falling in love was the last thing on her mind. But fall in love she did. With her boss, a woman thir­ty-four years old­er. They embarked on a high-stakes, year-long love affair. Addict­ed to the high of first love, Felice was enthralled by Sarah’s atten­tion and con­tent to hide their love in the shad­ows. Though not per­fect, it was enough. Until their secret was exposed, forc­ing Felice to pub­licly acknowl­edge their illic­it love or start a new life for herself.

In this can­did com­ing-of-age mem­oir — as com­pelling as a nov­el — Felice chron­i­cles the hap­pi­ness and heart­break of an age-gap love affair while strug­gling to fig­ure out the direc­tion of her future. Ulti­mate­ly, this is a sto­ry about nav­i­gat­ing life’s unpre­dictable path while fol­low­ing one’s heart and find­ing acceptance.
