After almost losing her fourth child in an accident at work, Claire Danner Crispin has given up her career as a nationally renowned glassblower at the request of her husband, Jason. Weighed down by guilt, she devotes all her time to her family - but worries she is losing her own identity in the process.But when Lock Dixon asks Claire to help organise the annual Nantucket Children's Charity Gala, she is given a new sense of purpose. She is asked in part because her school sweetheart, Max West, is now a world-famous rock star and it's hoped she will persuade him to play at the event. But Lock also wants her to produce a piece of art to raise money for the charity - which means defying her husband's request to stop work. And as she spends more time with Lock, she realises a growing attraction between them which neither can ignore...
