Sensitive story of a neglected wife who bears the scars of early sexual abuse. When her husband, Michael, shows up after years of serving his country, Brenna questions his long absence and why their arranged marriage wasn’t consummated in their short time together. The arrival of Michael’s young sister, Maeve, now not wanted in Ireland, becomes challenging when Uncle Angus shows more than a friendly interest. Michael has his own secrets. The couple haltingly finds their way to the love they have always felt for each other, their encounters somewhat scarred by the past. Flames help.

Great ending story of a three-part series. Burrowes is not afraid to write about difficult situations. In this story, the abuses of her husband's uncle.
