The conditions set down for the adoption were quite simple. Kate Summers must agree to disappear from Boston and never breathe a word about the adoption to anyone. She readily agrees and the beautiful baby boy is hers.

Now, fifteen years later, Kate and her son Jon have settled in Hopewell, Oregon, but the woman still fears that her secret will one day come to light. Then everything changes when Daegan O'Rourke arrives in the small town and is befriended by Kate and her son.

Suddenly realizing that someone is watching her and Jon, Kate must deal with the fact that there's a person willing to go to any length to claim her boy. With the explosive secrets of her past threatening to come to light and destroy her life, Kate would like to turn for help to the one person she trusts. The problem is Daegan harbors his own family skeletons and some of them have shocking ties to Kate's past.
