Now an adult and successful artist, Seth returns home to Chesapeake Bay, to the only family he has ever known. There he meets newcomer to the town Drusilla Whitcomb Banks, but while an attraction sparks, Seth realises that she is way out of his league. Added to which, her own history has taught her not to give her heart lightly. But Seth cannot ignore his feelings. And if he is ever to win a place in Dru's affections, he must finally face up to his own tragic past and the mother who sold him . . .
