is the sequel to Two Once Removed where Callie Larson and Jason Cartwright come together again as life continues to move forward and unravel at the same time, truths are uncovered, and their extended families make the bigger realities more painfully clear.
In the months that follow their impromptu weekend of rediscovery and Callie's cryptic Thanksgiving Day text saying to wait for her, Jason invests in a mountain retreat after staying there over Christmas and New Years as his girls spent those holidays with their mom. The purchase is kept secret as his kids know of his travels back and forth to Asheville, North Carolina near where the retreat is located.
Callie finally returns to the beach searching for Jason after her marriage finally falls apart. With her kids on vacation in Nantucket with her ex-husband, she travels to surprise Jason after holding her promise of complete silence while she focused on resolving her marriage issues. When she arrived at the beach, Callie is disappointed Jason is not there when she meets his daughters who realize she is the mystery woman in the photograph on Jason's kitchen counter.
The events that follow draw in family and friends to establish a new reality for both Callie and Jason. Absolute silence followed by missteps and misunderstandings challenge their destiny to be together to not be as absolute as first thought.
Two Once There is an intense, emotional story about taking the step from mid-life, loveless marriage fantasy to reality. Parents, children, friends and geography all collide as both Jason and Callie learn more about what a life together would be and how it would affect them and their lives with their families.
