A young woman flees when a shocking secret about her birth is revealed... Jaela asks for a job transfer then moves to Macon, Georgia, to house sit. But her desire for quiet contemplation is thwarted - the old Victorian home is being revated. Noisy, infuriating Eric Larsen, the handsome handyman, causes sparks to fly. Jaela is in the house by invitation only, and there isn't a thing she can do about the continuous ise. An octogenarian neighbor zones her biculars in on the house. Madge Wilcox doesn't buy Jaela's story of the Carlsons touring Europe. She believes Jaela and Eric committed an atrocious crime. When Eric uses a shovel to turn a flowerbed, Madge investigates. A letter from Jaela's estranged grandmother and a letter hidden in an unusual place help Jaela understand her mother's choices. Will they open Jaela's heart to a special love that only comes once in a lifetime?
