Darby Lane and Russell Gunn had been inseparable friends since their days in the Horseshoe, the wonderful Baton Rouge neighborhood of their youth. But after graduate school, a tragic accident takes Russ's life -- and Darby's world is shattered. Her long journey to healing brings her closer to Russ's brother Ben, whom she begins to see through new eyes. Suddenly love blooms in the place of grief; and now, with the help of the three wily and colorful aunts who raised her, Darby faces the challenge of reuniting Ben with his estranged father -- if she and her aunts can get through the conniving schemes of Ben's social climber stepmother. Bit by bit, Darby discovers that loss can build new life -- and love truly can conquer anything.

New York Times bestselling author Fern Michaels has a passion for romance that stems from her other joys in life-her family, animals and historic homes. She is usually found in South Carolina, where she is either tapping out stories on her computer or completing some kind of historical restoration.From AudioFile:
Laural Merlington brings drama to Michaels's story of family relationships and tragic circumstances. Though Darby is devastated when her young husband, Russell, dies unexpectedly, she is surprised by her attraction to Ben, Russell's brother. Merlington's even, unhurried voice provides expert narration with carefully executed pauses even as she aptly switches to dialogue. Darby's aunts have wonderful Southern accents, and each voice is slightly different as Merlington makes use of pitch to distinguish between the various aunts and instill them with colorful personalities. Darby's soft, breathy voice resonates with intelligence and compassion as Ben's deep, sensual voice reveals his love for her.
