Shaken, Annabelle Waters returns to her burnt childhood home. As she takes care of her surviving parents, the remaining farm and studies for her last nursing exam, commitments she’s made in San Francisco haunt her.
Excited to have Annabelle back in town, Derek Fields pulls all the stops to convince his next-door neighbour, the girl he’d last seen as a kid, to stay for longer than a month. His best friend’s scrubby little sister has grown into a woman who fills his dreams and he can’t let her go.
The moment their paths cross, neither realizes that as their friendship grows, so do the consequences of their actions. They’re both about to be tested by a man who’s had a plan for Annabelle Waters for much longer than she’s known him because sooner or later, all secrets come out.
