But with her son recently imprisoned for a crime she is certain he didn't commit, and her daughter marrying too young, Josie now worries about thefuture--and wonders if she'll ever be able to ensure their safety and happiness. Across town, in a gorgeous house by the sea, successful property developer Bel Monkton lives in comparative luxury. But she has struggles of her own. Since the death of hertwin sister more than a year ago, Bel has been unable to rebuild her shattered world, and the troubled past she thought was behind her haunts her ever more.

  • "Josie, a housecleaner and part-time waitress who struggles to make ends meet, is worried sick about her husband, who can't seem to get enough taxi fares to pay the bills, her son, in prison for a crime she's sure he didn't commit, and her daughter, who is getting married (too young, Josie thinks) to her college sweetheart. All she wants is to protect her family from her devastating news; they can't handle one more thing going wrong. Money is no object to Bel, who received a tidy inheritance from her mother and renovates houses in her spare time. But Bel has just lost the person who matters most - her twin sister Tanya - to breast cancer, and she's incredibly lonely. Her only comfort is Tanya's two small children, who see Bel as a surrogate mother. But Tanya's widower has gotten married again, frighteningly fast, and is threatening to take the children half-way around the world for his new job. An unlikely friendship blossoms between Josie and Bel who band together to help each other through difficult times and get to the heart of what matters most"--
