What happens when two people that shared a relationship earlier in life run into each other again after nearly two decades apart? These two realized that they never stopped caring for each other and discover that they may still have strong feelings. They both have their own lives and families now. However, they both know that if their love for each other grows, it can lead them to the brink of disaster. Will their love story have another chance or will these two forever become strangers with memories? Follow the romantic and scandalous lives of Norman and Gail as the creative and highly imaginative author Chuck Dozier pens a passionate and dramatic tale of love and infidelity that defies the true meaning of happy ever after in The Second Time Around.

This book depicts marriage disappointments, disillusions and the struggle for happiness from a male prospective. Most men are fundamentally good and can resist the temptations of infidelity when given a choice. The challenges of dealing with a wife that constantly pushes them to the margin of her life can often be too much for some men to bear.

As a young man right out of college, Norman, was assigned by his company to a territory in southern Pennsylvania. While living, there Norman met Gail, an attractive middle-aged woman that was ten years his senior with a teenage daughter. Gail and Norman became inseparable and very much in love. Neither of them felt any pressure to get married.

After six years Norman was promoted and had to transfer to another part of the country. Fearing that their age difference would cause their relationship to fade, Gail opted to stay in Pineville and they drifted apart. Many years later when their paths crossed again. Gail realized that she was still in love with the man that she had considered her soul mate. However, Norman was now married with two kids and based in Seattle. His marriage is unstable and Gail soon realizes that there might be a second chance to have the man she has loved for nearly half her life.

With his judgment clouded by the lack of attention from his wife, Norman begins to feel that he might have chosen the wrong woman for his life.

The Second Time Around will appeal to many readers because they can identify with the events of the story in their own lives. The way that it is written, there is something in it for every married couple to build on.
