But her experience there helps her gain the wisdom she needs to make her own life-altering decision. A short story. Not a typical happily-ever-after romance. Also includes an excerpt from "Last Flight From Flagstaff."“I stared at the ring on my finger. After the champagne, I had a vague memory of a tacky wedding chapel.
