Two lives. One hour. A lifetime consequence. I believe in choice, not fate. I chose to nurse a broken heart at the kitschy country bar that night. I chose to let Isaac Cordova buy me a drink. I chose to spend one hour with a near stranger in an attempt to soothe my pain. No last names, no details about our lives, just one hour where I was allowed to forget, and then we would never see each other again. But was it a choice when I ran into him five years later? I needed help, and he was the only person equipped to give it. Our instant attraction doesn¿t feel like much of a choice either, but it doesn't matter. Everything has changed. Now my choices impact other people.And what will I choose? Do I keep Isaac out?Do I dare to let him in?

The second volume in the WWII history “written with simplicity, lucidity, and gusto” by the legendary leader and Nobel Prize winner (The New York Times). In Their Finest Hour, Winston Churchill describes the invasion of France and a growing sense of dismay in Britain. Should Britain meet France’s desperate pleas for reinforcements or conserve their resources in preparation for the inevitable German assault? In the book’s second half, entitled simply “Alone,” Churchill discusses Great Britain’s position as the last stronghold against German conquest: the battle for control of the skies over Britain, diplomatic efforts to draw the United States into the war, and the spreading global conflict. Their Finest Hour is part of the epic six-volume account of World War II told from the viewpoint of a man who led in the fight against tyranny, and enriched with extensive primary sources including memos, letters, orders, speeches, and telegrams, day-by-day accounts of reactions as the drama intensifies. Throughout these volumes, we listen as strategies and counterstrategies unfold in response to Hitler’s conquest of Europe, planned invasion of England, and assault on Russia, in a mesmerizing account of the crucial decisions made as the fate of the world hangs in the balance.
