Annie Ferguson was one of Manhattan's brightest young architects. But overnight she became mother to her sister's three orphaned children. It wasn't the life she'd planned, but one that rewarded her tenfold for every sacrifice she'd had to make.

Now, at forty-two, with a satisfying career and a fulfilling family life, Annie has reconciled herself to being single. With the children now grown into young adults and confronting major challenges of their own, she is navigating a parent's difficult passage between lending them a hand and letting them go.

Then, an accident leads Annie to a man who will tempt her to reconsider her belief that it isn't too late to fall in love, after all...

Back cover copy

Annie Ferguson - a bright, talented young Manhattan architect - had the world in the palm of her hand...until a single phone call altered the course of her life forever. Overnight, she became the mother to her sister's three orphaned children. Suddenly, her own life seemed indefinitely on hold.

Years later, she is as independent as ever, with a satisfying career and a family that means everything to her. Annie is comfortable being single and staying that way, but with her nephew and nieces now young adults, with careers as diverse as fashion editor, law student and rebellious artist, she is facing the empty nest with some trepidation.

Until a chance encounter of her own changes Annie's life yet again...
