Overview

MELANIE BECKETT has a fear of being abandoned-her mother was killed by a hit-and-run driver and her father disappeared on the same day. She was left at the age of two months in the care of a family friend. Now a successful real-estate broker, she finds satisfaction helping others find a house to make a home. Suddenly Melanie's world turns upside down. She accidentally finds a foreclosed house that matches the only material object from her past-a photograph of her mother and father standing in front of this house holding a baby wrapped in a quilt made of pastel cotton scraps-she is that baby. Drawn to buy the house, she soon discovers a hidden trunk containing the baby quilt in her photo, a pouch with a gold nugget and a locket. She becomes consumed with desire to find her father. However, she has been told her parents held a secret that put them in mortal danger and Melanie could be next if she pursues this search. Melanie ignores these warnings and begins her journey to find her father. She befriends a doctor, Mitch O'Reilly, who is immediately attracted to her. She learns he carries a secret that haunts him as well. Does the baby quilt provide a vital clue in her search for her father? Will she find him? And will she and the doctor allow love to enter their hearts?
