Abstract:

When a new feature on Pete Newbury's popular TV programme shows his adult image digitally transformed to that of a young child, Beth is shocked to realise he's her 'baby' brother, who vanished without trace. Her mother, who has never recovered from the loss, desperately needs closure, but Pete makes it very clear he doesn't want to know his birth family. To further complicate matters, Beth finds herself falling in love with Pete's cousin and manager, Edward. At the same time Beth's runaway daughter reappears, complete with child, and Beth is terrified of losing her again. It's not easy to build bridges and bring families together after so much heartache, and she may lose the man she loves in the process.
