Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:
In the second novel of the Dream Trilogy, Nora Roberts continues the story of three women who shared a home and a childhood--but grew to fulfill their own unique destinies...
Surrounded by the sweeping cliffs and beauty of Big Sur, Kate Powell treasured her life at Templeton House...and the family who raised her like one of their own. Although Kate lacked Margo's beauty and Laura's elegance, she knew she had something they would never possess--a shrewd head for business. Driven by ambition, Kate measured her life's success with each soaring promotion. But now faced with professional impropriety, Kate is forced to look deep within herself--only to find something missing in her life...and in her heart.
Sequel to: Daring to dream.
Surrounded by the sweeping cliffs and beauty of Big Sur, California, Kate Powell treasures her life at Templeton Houseand the family who raised her like one of their own. Although Kate lacks Margo's beauty and Laura's elegance, she knows she has something they would never possess - a shrewd head for business. Driven by ambition, Kate measures her life's success with each soaring promotion. But now faced with accusations of professional impropriety, Kate feels that she has lost everything she's worked so hard for. Which is when Byron DeWitt walks into her life and Kate is forced to reevaluate exactly what it is she's fighting for.
"Ever since the death of her parents, Kate Powell has felt the need to prove herself to the aunt and uncle who raised her. But Kate's world tilts on its axis when a former family friend reveals that Kate's father had been accused of embezzlement at the time of his death. Kate is horrified to discover that her aunt and uncle paid her father's debts. Not knowing how to discuss her findings, she internalises her pain. And when she herself is wrongly accused of fraud, the usually strong Kate withdraws and refuses to fight the charges... Hotel expert Byron De Witt... realises that Kate's problems are making her ill. Though Kate is nothing like the women Byron usually finds attractive, something about her gets to him and he's determined to help Kate to open up, rediscover herself and fight to clear her name."--Publisher description.
