Julia Abbot and Ryan Matthews have been inseparable best friends since the moment they met. Each of them fight an internal battle, unwilling to risk their incredible friendship, but unable to quell their deep longing for the other. On the verge of Ryan’s departure to Harvard Medical School and Julia’s for her new job on the opposite coast, they are forced to face the undeniable truth of their deeper feelings and find themselves enthralled in a passion like neither has ever known.
The lovers are faced with forced separation, great distances and others who try to sabotage their relationship as both of them work to build the shared future they both dream of. When their lives begin to finally gel, Julia is offered a promotion that will jettison her career to new heights. Ryan is left angry and bereft as it will only postpone their reunion yet again. In light of the sacrifices she has made for him, he can hardly deny her, and Julia is faced with the most difficult decision of her life. Will she choose the chance of a lifetime or the love of her life?
The Future of Our Past is the first book in The Remembrance Trilogy, a truly transcendent love story of a powerful and passionate connection, like we all dream of.

Ryan and Julia have been the best of friends through college, but have never admitted their true feelings for one another. Now, they face separation when he is accepted to Harvard Medical School and she accepts a job on the West Coast. Only at the last moment do they realize how much they love one another. The two of them must find a way to be together without sacrificing their hopes and dreams.
This novel has the unfortunate dialogue of a soap opera and the descriptive prose of a Harlequin romance novel. There is too much drama for this situation. If they were so close, why couldn't they just share their feelings? And why does Julia have to cry all the time? Okay, maybe it's just not for me, but I outgrew these novels in Junior High. Therefore, I'm giving it 1 star.
