Connie Thorne was abandoned by her mother: a foundling left for strangers to find. She fiercely carves her own place in the world, shaping her own identity away from her adoptive family. Her distance from her sister, Jeanette, her opposite in every way, is magnified when they both fall in love with the same man. Years later, with bitter betrayal between them, Jeanette contacts Connie to tell her she is dying. The only family Connie will ever know is disappearing. Leaving her peaceful hideaway in Bali, Connie hurries to her sister’s side. Can the two of them put the past behind them and make their peace? And can Connie make her own peace with who she is – and who she loves?
