Paula Donroe is a smart, beautiful, self-assured woman with an attitude- and a heart full of painful memories. She seems to be living the good life, but the heartbreaking decision she made twenty-two years ago reminds her of what she has lost. Not even a sucessful career and the love of her two young sons can erase the past and make her whole.
Will Paula find the healing she desperately needs? A disasterous encounter with two LDS sister missionaries raises barriers she may never overcome, and her son's growing friendship with the elders doesn't help. Then there's Ted Barstow, her friend and employee, whose memories of his own past with the Mormons complicate their relationship. But everything pales in the shadow of a sudden tragedy, and Paula faces the bittesweet reality that sometimes the path to happiness is rocky and paved with heartache.
