A perfect life—until one letter threatens to unravel it all.
Lady Vanessa Cambury, Marchioness of Camburton, adores her life of bucolic contentment with her partner, acclaimed portrait painter Nora White. Together, they have raised two children from Vanessa's first marriage and built a home filled with purpose, ease, happiness, and passion — always passion.
But when Nora receives word that the child she lost twenty years ago is alive and in England, ancient heartache threatens to destroy their idyll.
To salvage their love, they must come to a deeper understanding of who they are — in the world, and to one another. Nora must learn to overcome the dark shadows of her past. Vanessa must learn to put others' needs before her own. And Nora's stubborn daughter must find it in her heart to forgive the mother she thought abandoned her. This unconventional family must rely on the powerful links of love and mercy to bind them back together.
