“Each moment passed like a century while she stood and felt the foundations of her life quiver under her.”
Doris Dunbar spends the night following her father’s death staring at a daunting pile of bills and anticipating an unavoidable string of hard days to come. An unwise business investment before his death has left John Edward Dunbar’s children without anything except a selfish, demanding stepmother and a bevy of bill collectors. As the problems mount daily Doris prays for an impossible situation: a job that pays the bills but still leaves time to salvage the household that seems determined to fall apart before her eyes.
Scottish businessman Angus Macdonald also hopes for an impossible solution to his own troubles. Business calls him to Europe, which leaves his aging, widowed mother alone for an indefinite period of time. But just any companion won’t do. . . .
When their paths cross, Doris seems the perfect companion. . .and Angus’s job offer is just what Doris needs to revive her dwindling hope. But will an easy salvation yield more hurt than help?
