Years ago Dilly made the devastating decision to give her baby daughter to wealthy local family, the Farthings. She is still living with the consequences of her choice when the daughter she gave away all those years ago turns up on Dilly’s doorstep, with a baby girl in tow, begging for help. Olivia has a secret she only feels safe telling Dilly.
Sworn to secrecy, Dilly agrees to help, delighted to be spending time with her new granddaughter and daughter. She can’t tell Max Farthing, the man who took in Olivia all those years ago and who Dilly has feelings for. For Max has problems of his own: he’s married to Camilla, who has lost leave of her senses. Could Dilly and Max ever come together?
