Sara Kyle is thrown into the world of single parenting when her husband dies suddenly, leaving her to raise their two children. After a period of mourning, Sara knows she must care for her children, and she starts a successful business fixing up and renting run-down houses. For a time, she feels that her life is complete-until she meets the man of her dreams, Dr. Mark Raybourne.
Mark is a handsome and well-liked pediatric surgeon. More than anything, he wants to settle down and raise a family, but he hasn't been successful in finding the right woman. When he meets Sara, though, he is instantly taken with her. As their romance blossoms, Mark and Sara discover a love for each other that is stronger than anything either of them has felt before. But when a woman from Mark's past comes to him with shocking news, he finds himself torn between following his heart and doing what he feels is right. Sara struggles to understand Mark's situation, but she soon has her own startling news to deal with.
Both Mark and Sara have to decide what is most important to them and redefine their relationship if they hope to find their way back to each other again-or risk losing what they have forever.
