Banner O'Bryan has always hoped that the saying "Like Mother, Like Daughter" was a bunch of hogwash. Why would she want to be like a woman who had deserted her husband and daughter for another man?
Then Banner meets Yuri Yaarbo, and her own long-repressed emotions begin to surface. Suddenly, she understands the kind of love that can drive a woman to leave her home, and though Banner has no family to hold her, her home means more than anything to her. It's her refuge, where she had taken refuge from a shattered childhood.
Yuri's love makes Banner dream of living a new, exciting life. But first, she will have to learn the truth -- Yuri may not be what he seems -- and let go of her traumatic past.
