Fern Michaels, author of the New York Times
bestselling trilogy--Vegas Rich, Vegas Heat
and Vegas Sunrise
--thrills us once again with the story of an unforgettable young woman who was stolen as a toddler from a poor but loving family, and who must journey through a maze of heartbreak before she can reclaim her true identity.
Raised in a magnificent Charleston house, Jessie Roland wants for nothing. But as she grows into young adulthood, all she feels is loss and a desperate need to break free from the stifling possessiveness of her "parents". Somewhere, in the deepest part of herself, Jessie believes that the world she has always lived in is not the one she came from...or belongs in.
Now, at age nineteen, she has escaped to Washington, D.C., where no one knows her, and here she is swept into a whirlwind marriage to a Texas senator's son. But the past will not release Jessie, who is once again haunted by a sense of lost happiness, of simple, tender gestures buried in her memory. Only in Lucas Palmer, a reclusive rancher, will she discover the strength to penetrate the darkness and find her way back to the place she can call home.
