"She was a young actress doing summer stock when she fell for her leading man. He was handsome and talented; who wouldn't fall in love with him. The audience surely did every time he took the stage. Then it was fall and he was gone. Fast-forward 35 years. Queenie McQuinn is sitting in her quilt shop when the door opens. She looks up and all the memories she's tried to forget come rushing back. She thought she would take her secret to the grave, but now that might not be possible. Gabe Downing is packing to move to Cutler to be with his ladylove when he gets word that his son is in danger. Kevin has been called to testify in the trial of his former boss, Jason Chen. The Chinese Syndicate, run by Jason's uncles, will do whatever it takes to keep that from happening. Gabe has no choice but to make the call, hoping she will understand. Miranda Hathaway does understand why Gave is delaying his move, but if he thinks she's going to wait at home while her new family is in danger, he doesn't know her very well. When Kevin's girlfriend, Terry, is taken hostage by the assassin, Gave knows he can't keep Kevin from going to the rescue. Like father like son!"--Page 4 of cover.
