To the neighbours who helped raise her, Madeline was a handful: opinionated, disruptive, verbose.
They blamed it all on her lack of a mother. But Madeline was happy: her father was parent enough.
Till he wasn't there for her any more, and Madeline had to grow up fast.
Befriended by Annie, she catches a glimpse of normal family life, and sees Annie glow as she marries her adoring Willie.
Madeline has never wanted a regular man in her own life, yet somehow she finds herself living in a rambling Highland mansion with Stuart, loving to the point of exhaustion, and painting her heart out.
Until life creeps into the idyll with a vengeance...
