Ten years ago, Raquel dumped Scott for an abusive man. Too bad she didn't understand that Scott loved her enough to marry her. She thought they were just good friends because Scott never made his feelings known and interpreted his lack of physical affection as a lack of romantic interest.
Now they meet again because of Raquel's troubling physical symptoms that come and go. When she finally sought medical attention, Scott was the last person she expected to see walk into her exam room. This time Raquel is a widow-emotionally fragile from years of abuse-and she needs a friend she can trust.
Scott never got over Raquel. He worries he will fall in love with her again. Her past rejection causes Scott to guard his heart as he helps her navigate the unwanted changes in her life. Over time he begins to trust her again as she fights discouragement over her diagnosis. Now Raquel has the unconditional love she has always longed for, but will it be enough?
