“Just For A While” is Zøe Haslie’s debut novel, a tale of love, friendship, struggling family relationships and, above all, forgiveness.
Charlotte Harrington is capable of love, but the feelings of love, of letting anyone close to her, scare her.
Seventeen-year-old Charlotte’s life turns abruptly when her mother sends her away to spend the summer before college with her father—a man she knows nothing about and cares even less for. Forced by a promise she made to her mom, and having secretly thrown her future away, Charlotte finds herself stuck in the small town of Rosetown. Moving in with Daniel proves to be a challenge for both of them, as Charlotte will undo his every attempt to get to know her.
When Misha literally bumps into her life, along with his mesmerizing black eyes and his challenging ways, Charlotte finds herself stepping in quicksand. Despite her resolution to keep everyone at bay, Misha soon finds his way into her heart, making her lower her guard and open her long-closed heart to love.
As the summer unfolds, Rosetown and its memorable inhabitants inevitably start to grow on Charlotte. But, will she ever manage to forgive Daniel for walking out on her and her mother?
