Forever three

Successful author and all around nice guy Dean Cassidy has lived with the misfortune of loving two women for far too long. Although he deeply loves his wife of twenty-two years, he just can't shake his haunting memories of his childhood sweetheart, Theresa Wayman. Never has the sun set on a day when images of Theresa haven't raided his mind--images gilded with the golden memories of youth. But now things are getting worse. A string of events occur that suddenly tighten the torturous triangle in on him like a three-sided vice.

Day after day Dean is pummeled by a soul-numbing succession of guilt and uncertainty. Alone in his inner battle, he feels himself getting closer to the edge of madness. Then, to make matters even worse, he suddenly comes face to face with the worst tragedy of his life. But the human spirit does not destruct easily. It is resilient and tenacious. And as close to going down as Dean is, he's determined to keep swinging until the very end.

If ever there has been a story to give voice to the joy and pain of love it's Forever Three--the stand-alone sequel to internationally acclaimed bestseller Beyond Nostalgia.

Sample text:

Chapter 1

How It Was

People may think there’s nothing worse than to have never loved another, but I don’t buy that for a minute. The way I see it, it’s impossible to miss what you never had. You might long for it, but you can’t miss it. No sir, what I’ve been through has to be far worse. You see, for many years I’ve lived with the soul-tormenting misfortune of loving two women at the same time.

Oh, I would imagine some people might say, ‘What’s your problem? If you love two women simply go with the one you love most.’ But that’s a lot easier said than done. There is no way of calculating or measuring the deepest of all human emotions. No way of comparing their strength. You can’t simply say that on a scale of one to ten the love you feel is an eight, a nine, or a perfect ten. Nor can you stand it on a bathroom scale and weigh it. It’s just not that easy. Love is a lot like fingerprints – no two are ever the same. Believe me I’m not just talking the talk. I know what I’m talking about. I’ve walked the walk.


The first of my two loves was the fireworks and rockets type, and to this day it’s gilded with golden memories of our youth. The second came to me a bit later in life, and since day one it has had a far more subtle feel.
