Alexandra lives for her successful business. She knows what she wants from life, and more importantly, what she doesn’t want. But on a winter morning on the suburban streets of Christchurch, her plans collide with a man who will change her existence.
Mike is straight-laced and down to earth with strong family values – everything Alex isn’t. After he’s forced to scrutinize his life, he turns his attention on the woman who inadvertently gave him a second chance.
For Alex, the attention is unwelcome. Her memory of family is something she’d rather forget, not be a part of, but when Mike’s kin embraces her as one of their own, she begins to doubt her beliefs.
Alex is forced to take a good hard look at her tattered past. But have her painful secrets been locked away too long for a few understanding words to release them?
