After surviving the disaster that destroyed his home and moving with his sister to the small village of Port Croft, Charlie Gaston has found a new life and developed a bit of a reputation as a heartbreaker. Now he's feeling the pressure to settle down with his on-and-off girl Jenny, but he's not ready - and when Jenny's cousin comes to visit, Charlie's life is further complicated. Alice Campbell didn't want to come to Port Croft, but her parents insisted she needs some time away. A year after giving birth to a baby girl out of wedlock and hiding herself away with a child who will grow up to know her only as a sister, she's counting down the days to when she can return to her daughter. She has no patience for life in Port Croft, let alone the young man with the blue scars and the charming smile. Sequel to Shadows May Fall. Please note, some content may be disturbing.
