Betrayed by her boyfriend and best friend, Lena is left empty; trapped under a weight of guilt and loneliness. Then, at her lowest point and when she needs it most, a mysterious stranger comes into her life with a tale of friendship, family, and finding love in the most unexpected of places... Katy Heath is definitely not thinking of love when she comes across consultant, Adam Elliot, berating some poor patient on the ward one day. In fact it is Dr Peter Florin who quickly has everyone's hearts aflutter with his easy smiles and practised charm. Yet Katy comes to realise that there's more to Adam than his determination to push everyone away and it's not long before she finds herself longing to reach out to touch the man within, healing the pain of his past. As Lena is drawn into Katy's story, she begins to learn - just as Katy does- that the course of true love never did run smooth.
