Twenty years have past since the incident involving six lonely children at a secret playground in Indigo Valley, Pennsylavania which left the town bully dead and ten-year-old Cady Jordan seriously injured. Now Cady has returned to the valley to care for her ailing grandmother Lola, the only person Cady has ever truly loved. While Cady has grown into attractive, intelligent, but overly cautious young woman, she has no memory of her childhood tragedy. Lola desperately wants to see Cady embrace life and find the happiness she deserves so she pushes her granddaughter to "remember". As Cady reacquaints herself with her old friends, she begins to recalls bits and pieces of what happened that fateful day. She also discovers a new zest for life and falls in love for the first time. But her friends don't want her to remember. If the truth comes out, their safe and secure lives might be ruined forever. Which of them will do what is best for Cady and acknowledge the truth, and which of them will betray her again and do what is best for themselves? With vibrant, complex characters and her distinctive blend of humor and poignancy, Fern Michaels is at the peak of her storytelling abilities. Late Bloomer takes listeners on the young woman's journey of self-discovery that is exciting, heartbreaking and ultimately triumphant.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“[Fern Michaels's] characters are real and endearing, her prose so natural that it seems you are witnessing the story rather than reading about it.”      Los Angeles Times
“ This sharply written romance offers cutting insight into the place of aging women in society, the definition of manliness and the dance of courtship itself. The joy that accompanies the happy ending of romance novels is restrained here by the gritty tone, the blunt presentation of cultural differences, and by Pritchard's insistence on the conflicting views that men and women have of courtship. ” The Washington Post
“[A] feel-good page-turner…Michaels's protagonist may be a late bloomer, but this novel won't be— expect it to hit bestseller lists early.” Publishers Weekly
“ Michaels' delightful sense of humor and understanding of human nature and frailties make this a riveting and poignant tale. Highly recommended for all public libraries. ” Library Journal
“A powerful, charachter-driven story.” Barnes & Noble, editorial review
“Energetic melodrama in straightforward style from the ever-popular Michaels.” Kirkus Reviews
