Jess Thomas’ life was veering to a crashing halt. Her husband vanished, leaving her with two children to take care of. She tries to manage things alone, juggling her two jobs and the eternal job of being a mother single-handedly. Her daughter Tanzie is a whiz with numbers, but she needs a helping hand to reach the heights she’s capable of scaling. Her teenage stepson, Nicky, is always picked on by bullies, and there’s no one to show him how to stand up to them. Yet, her life takes a surprising turn when the handsome Ed Nicholls appears. His life is in chaos too, but he has time for her, and a caring heart that wants to help. More than anything, there’s love in those eyes, and that might be the saving grace that Jess has been looking forward to.
