Leaving her home in the Philippines, Rebecca Spaneas took a step of faith. With her young son Davy, she looks to the future with hope - but she carries in her heart the powerful memory of her beloved, deceased husband. Courtney Fielding's body and spirit bear the scars of the war. His legs - and his heart, he fears - are useless. But when the dark-eyed Rebecca arrives, anticipating a job, Court feels a stirring within him. To protect his wounded heart, he resolves to be cold and distant. Despite Courtney's gruff ways, Rebecca finds herself drawn to him. She fights the thought, telling herself he's too tortured by his past - nothing like the perfect memory of her David. Yet she can't deny her attraction.
