The early years of Seth's life had been a prison of fear, abuse and neglect. Ray Quinn had rescued him from all that. And, after their father's death, Philip, Ethan and Cam had continued his good work, raising Seth, as their own brother. Now a successful artist, Seth returns to Chesapeake Bay, to the only real family he has ever known. Drusilla Whitcombe Banks is a newcomer in town and way out of Seth's league. She has money, class, an impeccable background and does not give her heart lightly. Despite these odds, Seth is determined to try, and to succeed he must face up to his tragic past and the mother who sold him.
