Very light shelfwear to edges and boards. Pages, crisp, tight and clean. DJ not clipped. 246 pages. HardCover Binding. Year: 2000. ISBN: 0385333404. Ellen has a life many people dream about-a glamorous fashion industry job, an apartment in Greenwich Village, good friends-and yet Ellen feels herself at sixes and sevens, filled with a vague longing for what? She can't say. Then the sight of her newborn niece, Nicole, makes her realize exactly what she's been missing: a child. But there's one problem. Malcolm, the man she loves, is too scarred by the long-ago death of his young son to even consider fatherhood again.
