1914…

A woman forced to face her past …

Suffering amnesia following a tragic accident, Dianna Douglas struggles to fit into a marriage, and family, she has no recollection of helping create. When her memory returns with brutal clarity of her young son who’s vanished and is believed dead, victim of the same storm that almost killed her, she refuses to accept he’s gone forever…

A man desperate for closure…

Jake Douglas lost his first wife and son in childbirth. To cope with the pain of their loss he walled himself off from those who would have loved him. Dianna, and the children they’re raising together, gave him reason to break out of his self-imposed prison and learn to live—and love—again. Now he’s willing to do whatever it takes to find answers—provide closure—for the woman, and family, he loves…

Two hearts determined to reclaim their own…

The quest for clues to their son’s disappearance leads Jake to England just as Britain joins the war against Germany, while Dianna stays in Texas to keep home fires burning. But when weeks turn to months without word from Jake, Dianna is forced to leave her daughters behind and return to the land of her birth where she unearths dangerous truths and exposes devastating lies that send her on desperate race against time to save both the child and the man she loves… a perilous fight to reunite her family… make them, and their hearts, whole again…
