Sometimes you meet the love of your life when you're too young to know it, but the ache of its passing never leaves you. So realizes Carl Rooney, slinking toward a midlife crisis after yet another failed romance, when one night he is awakened by a woman at his window. It's his long-lost high school sweetheart, Jesse, sneaking into his backyard, just as she used to for their nights of furtive lovemaking in the old greenhouse. But soon, Carl discovers that she isn't playing any nostalgia games--she truly believes that it is twenty years ago and they are both seventeen.Carl finds out that Jesse has been declared dead in a boating accident, and together they grow suspicious of Jesse's husband, a man who is now a total stranger to her. Through a series of eerie and darkly humorous adventures, Carl and Jesse investigate the forgotten years of her adult life, examine the choices they have both made, and tenderly attempt to rekindle their lost love.A story rich in wit and human understanding, Always Six O?Clock explores the power of remembered love and the chances of two star-crossed lovers realigning.
