Susan Wiggs made her way into listeners' hearts with stories of every woman's hopes and dreams. Now she returns with a touching tale of secrets and sacrifice, loss and redemption and a love too powerful to be denied.
Never get attached Private nurse and protected witness Claire Turner lives by this motto. Fleeing a treacherous past, she knows no other way.
Never give up In the twilight of his life, George Bellamy makes it his final wish to reconcile with an estranged brother. He and Claire journey to Willow Lake where it all went wrong for him fifty years ago.
Never let go George's grandson Ross is ruled by a fierce devotion to family and a deep mistrust of the mysterious Claire yet sparks fly whenever she's near. In the face of wrenching loss, amid the enchantment of Willow Lake, Ross and Claire dare to risk everything for love.
