When a rookie paramedic rescues a woman from a car crash, a love affair that will last for years begins-but it's not exactly a fairytale romance. Good guy Peter Webster falls hard for the beautiful, tough-talking Sheila Arsenault, and she for him. And in what seems to be a whirlwind relationship, the two marry and have a baby girl together. Eighteen years later, Sheila is gone from Peter's life, and Peter is raising their daughter, Rowan, alone. But the road of single parenthood is a difficult one, and Rowan is on her way down a path fraught with misfortune. Peter isn't ready to give up on his daughter-but his devotion to her doesn't seem to be enough this time. Unexpectedly, Sheila returns-but whether her reappearance is fortuitous or badly timed has yet to be seen.
