Niamh O’Rourke Ahern knows she should feel shame. Regret. Remorse. Anything but the deep relief filling her to the depths of her soul. What kind of woman is she to rejoice at the death of her husband? What woman yearns for another’s touch as her husband’s casket is being lowered into the ground? In the end, she knows it doesn’t matter for she will always be alone. No man will ever fully earn her trust again.

Will Cormac overcome his resentment and grief to fully accept the past and love Niamh, as he’s always dreamed? Or will Niamh use her guilt and fear as a shield, preventing her from truly loving again?
