Kept apart by a series of close calls and missed opportunities, destined lovers Alexander and Evelyn live parallel, but very different, respective existences as a lawyer from a working-class neighborhood and a privileged daughter endeavoring to prove her independence. By the author of Underneath It All. Original. 50,000 first printing.

Simon and Schuster

Sometimes what we have is not enough.

She doesn't know his name and he doesn't know hers, but they just might be perfect for each other. Alexander Velazquez, an ambitious lawyer from a working-class neighborhood, and Evelyn Sinclair, a daughter of privilege trying to make it on her own, are strangers living parallel yet very different lives. Alex finds himself deeply entrenched in the life of an unredeemable client, and Evelyn realizes she's committed herself to a company with questionable ethics.

They are both brokenhearted workaholics constantly trying to keep up with the demands of family and friends. What they both want is to find meaning in their lives; what they're doing is looking in the wrong directions. As they watch each other through their office windows, all they can do is wonder about what might happen if they took a chance on the stranger across the street.
