Summary
Annika is an English major at the University of Illinois. Anxious in social situations, she'd rather be surrounded by the order and discipline of books or the quiet solitude of playing chess. Jonathan joined the chess club and lost his first game -- and his heart -- to the shy and awkward, yet brilliant and beautiful Annika. What follows is a tumultuous yet tender love affair that withstands everything except the unforeseen tragedy that forces them apart, leaving them to navigate their lives alone. Now, a decade later, fate reunites Annika and Jonathan in Chicago. She's living the life she wanted as a librarian. He's a Wall Street whiz, recovering from a divorce and seeking a fresh start. The attraction and strong feelings they once shared are instantly rekindled, but until they confront the fears and anxieties that drove them apart, their second chance will end before it truly begins. --
