Two ordinary families. One life-changing day . . .

When the Gleesons and the Stanhopes become neighbours, lonely Lena Gleeson wants a friend. But Anne Stanhope – cold, elegant, unstable – wants to be left alone.

It’s left to their children – Lena’s youngest, Kate, and Anne’s only child, Peter – to forge a lasting friendship and a love that blossoms despite their parents’ differences.

When a shocking act of violence tears all their lives apart, Kate and Peter will spend years finding their way back to each other – rebuilding the love they lost, and learning to forgive.

But can their families ever understand the bond they share?

And how much can love ever truly heal?
