Kate is a music therapist in New York City and recently engaged to a seemingly perfect man. After their engagement, Kate starts having dreams about her late husband who died 12 years earlier and what their life would look like now if he had lived.
Harmel also wrote The Sweetness of Forgetting which was a bit unrealistic, so I liked that The Life Intended was actually a bit more believable. There's a bit more depth to this book compared to your average "chic-lit" book, and I had an above-average reading experience. A more quality beach read.
