Emotions are pushed to the limit in this riveting story of one woman's attempt to deal with loves past and present.
After the extreme heat of her Nantucket studio causes her to go into early labour and almost lose her youngest son, renowned artist Claire Danner Crispin now devotes her life to her four children, and her husband Jason.
But when Lock Dixon asks Claire to help organise the annual Nantucket Gala, she is given a new sense of purpose. Asked partly in the hope that she can persuade her school sweetheart, now a world-famous rock star, to play at the event, Claire is tempted by the challenge. On the brink of a decision that could threaten her marriage, she is in danger of becoming closer to Lock than either of them had intended . . .
