A tale of passion and commitment, this story explores the conflicts of heart and mind and the anguish our unlikely heroine feels as she goes through life.
In the summer of 1980, the protagonist, Annie, escapes a doomed engagement by fleeing to the Costa del Sol in Spain. Annie falls in love with the mountains, the Mediterranean Sea, her enchanting little town, and the life she had in Spain. She experiences an all-consuming romance with Francisco, a talented musician with a complicated history. The affair, however, does not last and Annie embraces a stable family life in New York, far from the steamy, tropical paradise she had come to adore.
More than 25 years later, Annie is married to the love of her life, raising three children. Fueled by her mother’s stories, her curious teenage daughter seeks out Francisco while backpacking through Spain. Once Francisco reappears in Annie’s life, she is overcome with glorified memories of her early romantic past. She begins to second guess every decision she’s made and wonders about the life that nearly was hers.
Endearing and moving, This Nearly Was Mine is a psychologically complex account of the opportunities and obstacles put before Annie and their lasting effect on her life.
