Learning of her husband Stephen's fatal heart attack is the worst thing Mary Beth Mason can imagine - until she learns about the other family he left behind. Another wife, another daughter, another home hundreds of miles away in Seattle. For twenty years, Mary Beth's life centered around pleasing and loving Stephen, socializing with his lawyer friends, taking part in the exclusive San Francisco clubs and guilds he prized, and raising their daughter Aurora while he was away on "business." Having promised to take care of her forever, he left her instead with mountains of debt and a house mortgaged to the hilt. But amidst the piles of unpaid bills, Mary Beth discovers some unexpected gifts - a fierce determination to begin again, a strength she never knew she possessed, and a most unlikely ally. Out of the ashes of a lie, she starts to create the life - and the family - she's always wanted. A life built on trust, honesty, and perhaps even love...
