That summer, everything changed.
To begin with, Shelley Stuart found her father. For the first time in sixteen years, they were together again. And for the first time, Shelley learned the truth about why he'd left.
Then there was Raf Conway, her father's friend and partner. His protector. Raf was an exciting man--"damn-your-eyes handsome," fabulously successful. Shelley couldn't help it; she was attracted to him, drawn to his radiance, like a moth to flame. But he seemed so certain that she'd come to Australia out of greed--to take advantage of her father's new wealth, his generosity. And convincing Raf otherwise meant betraying her mother. Shelley couldn't do it.
One fateful summer of love and bitterness...how would it all end?
