After surviving a traumatic battle with her husband, Trevor, Lily and her six-month-old daughter are finally safe. Ready to move forward with her life, Lily has settled into the daily routine of the small town in the California Central Valley where she’s made her home. Her former neighbor, Marcus, has been a good friend to her, and has stood by her side as she’s recovered from the terror she so recently experienced. Lily’s feelings for Marcus have deepened and she’s ready for more, but when he tells her they are better off as friends, she is devastated.
Complicating matters, Trevor’s family wants to get to know his daughter. Not only does Lily feel obligated to comply with their wishes even though some members of Trevor’s family blame her for what happened, but with no family of her own, she strongly desires to have a surrogate family for herself and her daughter.
After struggling for so long, will Lily finally find the happiness she so desperately craves?
