Midwife Ellie Diamond convinces herself that the chance to bring up her young son in an idyllic coastal town is what has lured her back to Bell's River. Returning has nothing to do with the chance to work closely with her former love, obstetrician Dr. Luke Farrell -- the man Ellie promised to come back to five years ago.... Ellie discovers that Luke has changed as much as she has in the intervening years. One thing that hasn't changed, though, is their fierce and irresistible attraction for each other. But although Ellie dreams of a future with Luke, she fears that the secrets that separated them in the past could destroy their fragile relationship in the present. (Blurb)
