Book description
In Portland, Oregon, former model Carrie and land developer Brian Summers are considering adoption with the wife pushing it hard while her spouse reliantly goes along with her. Already filled with doubts, Brian has greater doubts when case worker Trina Bentley from Children's Connection offers an opportunity that he wants to refuse. Eight months pregnant eighteen year old unwed homeless Lisa Sanders knows she must give up her baby. Carrie takes Lisa into her home over the objection of her workaholic husband.

As Carrie observes Brian ignore Lisa and her elation of having a child, she realizes that their relationship has been built on falsehoods. She takes much of the blame hiding from him an odious violent episode from before meeting Brian, which is why she cannot conceive and worse unable to tell him. His family problems lie with the desertion by his mother years ago. Can Lisa with her own demons innocently bring two scarred souls obviously in love back together or will she serve as the final straw that piled on the deceptions break the marriage?
