After the death of her husband in Afghanistan, Kate Hemingway’s world collapses around her. Kate’s free time is spent with a charity for teenage girls in London, helping them mend their broken lives – which is ironic, since her own life is fractured beyond repair.
Reserved, upper-class journalist Paul Farrell is everything Kate and her teenage charges aren’t. But when Paul agrees to help Kate with her charity on a trip to the Yorkshire moors, he makes a stunning revelation that changes everything.
But can Kate take a risk with her son’s happiness as well as her own?
I know I’m not like Stuart,’ he said. ‘Stuart was easy and open with everyone he met. And I know I kept things hidden from you. But I loved you from the start. Loved you more than I love my own happiness. More than I love my own life.’
The bird called again, and rustled deeper into the heather. Paul took Kate’s face in his hands, and bent to kiss her. This time it was no gentle meeting of lips, but a mouth filled with tender, urgent passion. Kate leaned into him, and the sun beat down on them both as they kissed, easing the chill and filling Kate’s very bones with heat.
