From back cover:

Noelle Van Doren has never forgiven her mother for putting her career ahead of her family responsibilites. Left in her grandmother's care for much of her childhood, Noelle always swore that things would be different with her own daughter. And they were until her estranged husband, Robert snatched five-year-old Emma away from her.

During a bitter custody battle that brings Robert's dark secrets to light, Noelle's long-divorced parents begin to rekindle the passion they never truly let go. Noelle struggles to care for her ailing grandmother -- and finds the courage to embrace a new love. And three generations of women discover just how far a mother will go for the love of her child.
