Quaint island life in the Puget Sound offers everything Patricia Koehler desires for her husband and children, including the chance to share in the music of her beloved cello. But Patricia harbors a secret she can reveal to no one-until Susan drops into her life with a heart even larger than her love of life and laughter. But neither woman is prepared for the events set in motion when Patricia's secret is revealed…

Can Patricia trust her instincts, or will the sacrifice be too heavy to bear?
