To escape from her hometown, Claire Kendall had to leave her past -- and her sister -- behind...
Now her sister's sudden death has Claire going home to confront her past and her orphaned nephew -- who blames her for saving herself and not his mother. Complicating matters is Tucker Hall, a man who seems to have a genius for getting in the way when it comes to parenting Nick.
Claire know she'll be happy only once the town of Monroe is a speck in her rearview mirror, but she can't go before Nick is ready. In the meantime, she'll have to see a lot of Tucker and hope that he doesn't give her any reason to stay...
