At twenty-eight, Avery Tacconi has everything in life planned out - and everything is falling right into place. She has the career of her dreams, a husband she adores, and a beautiful suburban California home. She has all she ever wanted except one small thing - a baby. And after two years of unsuccessful fertility treatments, hope is running thin. Then her husband, Dan, discovers a ten-year-old son he never knew about. With the boy´s mother now deceased, Dan is the rightful guardian. He's anxious to bring his son into their home. But for Avery, this child is a constant reminder of her inability to conceive - and of Dan's secret, sordid past. This is not the man she fell in love with. And this is not a part of the life she's mapped out. Only when Avery is able to open her heart to all of life's possibilities will she appreciate her imperfect, unexpected family for what it truly is.
