Living alone in a small cottage in the woods, Michelle is hiding from a past too horrible to put into words. Without other people around, she finds she can focus better on simply surviving instead of regretting things she can’t change — like the scary scar on her face.
But everything changes after a severe storm. Michelle finds a mysterious stranger injured in the woods and knows she must open her doors to help him recuperate. When he awakens, however, he has no memory of who he is or where he came from. Michelle struggles to care for Jonathan as he copes with the growing understanding that he has no access to his past. But hope for the future dawns with each passing day they spend together.
Michelle and Jonathan face a growing attraction to each other, but when Jonathan’s past is revealed, will Michelle find herself worthy of the love of a Wharton?
