Dr. Atherton Nathan, Terry, never imagined that the pact he made four decades ago would cost him what he treasured most – his family. Though he survived the slow disintegration of his marriage, he held fast to the hope that he could win back the only woman he ever loved.
His youngest daughter now has a life and love he has at all times wanted for her and their relationship has healed enough for her to allow him to give her away all the way through her wedding. He hopes the weeks he will spend in Chandler County to verify her transition from her life and career in Chicago to Chandlerville before the nuptials will be enough to convince his wife…ex-wife of his love for her and hers for him.
Reina Fellows Nathan can in the end breathe a sigh of relief. Her youngest daughter’s life is out of danger and Shauna is carving out her own path towards happiness. All Reina has to do is get through the weeks it is going to take to help her daughter plan her wedding and steer clear of her ex-husband. He nearly destroyed her once and despite one of the changes he’s recently made she dare not accept as true with her heart to him.
Each day brings new challenges that work against her get to the bottom of to remain unaffected by her ex- husband’s attempts to court her again, but secrets, lies and a long-held pact that comes to light may make it not possible for a true reconciliation.
