Sara wants this baby more than she has ever wanted anything.

Sara has worked her entire life to overcome the name Barefield. To be a Barefield in the rural Appalachian county where she grew up means that you are the poorest of the poor, that you are shiftless and untrustworthy, lazy and stupid. Sara has succeeded in proving that she is none of those things. At the age of forty she has a nice apartment, a decent car, and a good job as a school secretary.

Tully Rutland, a Vietnam War veteran who is the father of her baby and the only man Sara has ever loved, dies before she tells him that she’s pregnant. The Rutlands have never approved of Sara. She feels that her only choice is to move away so she can make a new life for herself and her baby.

Sara has practically no savings and no one to support her. She knows she will have to go on welfare, but she escaped poverty once and believes she can do it again. But the poverty Sara plunges into after she gives birth is beyond anything she had expected. Facing eviction and the possibility of living on the street, she is determined to find a way out.

Ten years after disappearing from Antietam, Maryland, the bad boy Rafe MacKade has come home. Cleaned up and successful now—though still dangerously good-looking—Rafe’s return sets tongues wagging. But Rafe is not going to let a few gossips stop him from his dream. With the help of Regan Jones, who owns the local antique shop, he is restoring the old Barlow house into an inn. Working in such close quarters has Regan struggling to resist Rafe’s charms. Though she claims she doesn’t want to get involved with a rebel, Rafe’s pretty sure that her reaction to their sizzling kisses suggests otherwise…
