Hope Park and Patricia Johnson were best friends for years until deep, dark secrets surfaced. As a senior in college, sweet, virginal Hope was planning her life years in advance, a medical degree in her sights. However, one fateful choice later, and her future begins to unravel. Three days before graduation, Hope discovers a new person in her life, and everything changes. Now, family becomes the priority. Five years pass trapped in a relationship that is stretched across continents, raising a child alone, and now, confronted by a best friend's irreparable choice, Hope must find the strength to search for love--even if that means leaving all she knows behind. Convinced that moving to Africa to be with the father of her child is right, Hope steps into the questionable refuge of Adam's arms, but after suffering another disappointment, she decides to follow a different love: traveling. Francois, Henry, and Hope became friends over a cup of coffee and pastries in the streets of Paris. The father of her child claims her weekdays and Francois, her nights and weekends. When trouble threatens to completely destroy the life Hope's built, who will save her? Adam, the father of her child and profligate ladies man? Or Francois, the yet untested lover? Savor the romance and heartache of Bittersweet, a silky saga sure to leave a good taste in your mouth.
