Bryson and Ilene Davis have it all--a wonderful temple marriage, five beautiful children, a secure and happy future. Then, overnight, their lives are forever altered by two words: breast cancer. Suddenly, their passion for life--and for each other--is deeply affected by the reality of Ilene's fragile hold on mortality.
When Melissa James realizes the gravity of her beloved sister's condition she abandons a successful career to care for Ilene and her family, even though Bryson never really liked his wife's outspoken kid sister. But Melissa proves to be a godsend, and when the time comes to say good-bye, there are no regrets.
But the story is far from over. Can Bryson ever reconcile himself to the loss of his precious wife, or is his heart broken beyond repair? And what of Melissa? Will she be able to put a troubled past behind her and move on, or will her life be measured by one failed relationship after another?
