What happened to Mr. Right? Pamela comes to the miserable conclusion that she let him go when she turned down Robert Dickson thirteen years ago.
Racked with regret and at the brink of despair, Pamela magically collides with someone who is about to change her life: herself. The Pamela who did marry Robert Dickson all those years ago....
