Lark Tamany, R.N., faces the biggest challenge of her life when she becomes a private nurse to Timothy, a nine-year-old musical prodigy who bears emotional scars from the tragic auto accident that robbed him of his parents. Guilt feelings now prevent Timothy from playing the piano, and no one seems able to help him. Because Lark accepts the assignment quickly, she does not realize until it’s too late that Timothy is the brother of Revel Thorne, who jilted her at the altar several years ago — but who still claims to love her today. With much skill and warmth and understanding, Lark heals Timothy’s mental scars.
Will she ever be able to heal her own?
