By Margaret Kaine
A searingly touching saga from Margaret Kaine multi-award-winning author of Ring of Clay.
One girl's loneliness. One woman's emptiness. One phone call that will change both their lives forever.
When her mother dies in a tragic accident, Rosemary thinks life couldn't get any worse. Penniless and alone, she is betrayed by the one man she thought she could trust. Then her whole world changes when she finds out that she's adopted.
Beth has spent a lifetime regretting giving up her only daughter. Surrounded by the riches of the Rushtons, she's determined that one day she'll find the child she lost and reunite her with her true family.
And when that vital first connection is made, neither of their lives will ever be the same again . . .
