Her teenage daughter, Georgia, seems to have morphed into a monster overnight, and her son Liam breaks her heart with his sad brown eyes.

Within hours of arriving in Widgerry, Kate encounters local cop, Sergeant John Cafferty, courtesy of her wayward daughter. And despite the intrigue and gossip that follows Kate everywhere, Cafferty soon falls for her. As Kate and John's relationship blossoms, Kate feels like life is finally going right for her until her ex-husband comes to town and triggers a series of events that will change Kate's life forever. Despite the despair she faces, Kate comes to the conclusion that fate has led her back to North Star to face her demons and she must put her past to rest once and for all.
