Condemned by guardians who think she will only bring more trouble to the family, she is exiled from New Zealand to live with relatives in America.Consumed by guilt over her role in the tragic events of the past, a lonely Maxie arrives in America, ruled by her heart and still nurturing an unflagging desire for love.

She is ashamed to divulge her secrets of rape, motherhood, and subsequent disinterest in men. Colin Danes shares a similar background with Maxie. Ignored by both parents and raised by his devoted grandmother, Colins life changes forever one fateful night when his fathers actions propel him from rural New Zealand to New York. Feeling unworthy after suffering rejection from his parents, Colin must also live with a family hes never met.

He aspires to become completely different from his undisciplined father.Maxies journey to self-acceptance and forgiveness is further complicated when she meets the son of her mothers murderer. Colin and Maxie must eventually come to terms with the truth, and both will learn that through love, healing can begin.
