It is 1970 and Kate Starr is the perfect wife, the perfect mother, and the perfect housekeeper. But soon after her husband Patrick departs for a tour of duty in Vietnam, he is listed as MIA. Suddenly, Kate must raise their two daughters by herself, learn how to earn a living, and struggle with the U.S. Government to get news of her husband.
It is ultimately the government's callousness that turns Kate into an activist, determined to be heard. It is the beginning of the new Kate Starr. Twenty years later, she has educated herself and her daughters, started a sucessful business...and finally found love again...The fulfilling love of a passionate woman.

Michaels manages to keep the sappy quotient down to a minimum in this story of a young woman whose jet-pilot husband is lost over Vietnam, throwing her life and the lives of her young children into limbo.

Trancelike, she moved toward him. When she was standing nect to hims, she realized how tall he was, towering ove rher so she had to tilt her chin with the tips of his fingers so he could look into her eyes. He was going to kiss her,and she didn't want to stop him.
Her eyes cloes of their own accord as she waited. His lips, when they touched hers, were soft, giving as well as taking, persuading her gently to respond. She could feel his arms cradle her against him. He felt strong, and she felt safe and natural in his embrace. His fingers touching her face were tender, trailing whispery shadows over her cheekbones. Having him kiss her felt like the most natural thing in the world. It was a kiss.
A tender gesture, tempting an answer but demanding none.
