Susan Wiggs made her way into listeners' hearts with stories of every woman’s hopes and dreams. Now she returns with a touching tale of secrets and sacrifice, loss and redemption…and a love too powerful to be denied.

Never get attached—Private nurse and protected witness Claire Turner lives by this motto. Fleeing a treacherous past, she knows no other way.

Never give up—In the twilight of his life, George Bellamy makes it his final wish to reconcile with an estranged brother. He and Claire journey to Willow Lake—where it all went wrong for him fifty years ago.

Never let go—George’s grandson Ross is ruled by a fierce devotion to family and a deep mistrust of the mysterious Claire…yet sparks fly whenever she’s near. In the face of wrenching loss, amid the enchantment of Willow Lake, Ross and Claire dare to risk everything for love.

“Wiggs’s talent is reflected in her thoroughly believable characters as well as the way she recognizes the importance of family by blood or other ties. Highly recommended.” —Library Journal

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kim | 4/27/2011

    " It was difficult to listen to this story on CD. The narrator used the weirdest voice for the men in the story. Her female voice was beautiful though...sort of made up for the strange froggy male impersonations. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Helen | 4/1/2011

    " While I have enjoyed all of the books in this series, this one is my favorite so far. It's a multi-generation book and it was fun getting to know both older and younger members of the Bellamy family. One more book to go! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Christine | 3/3/2011

    " The first couple of chapters are kind of slow but once you get beyond them the book gets better. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Donna | 1/27/2011

    " I don't know why I didn't like this book better than I did. It had a good plot, good characters, and I loved the setting of a lodge on a lake. Maybe it was the mood I was in when I read it. Still, it is definitely worth reading. "

    " Cute mystery/romance story. Easy reading. "
