Upon Suzanne’s arrival back home, her family is surprised to find out that she has a grown daughter, Alexia and is not married. Coming back home to Kansas does not just mean facing her family and community, but it also means seeing her first and only love Paul Aldrich.
Now a widower with an eight your old son, Paul is relieved to see Suzanne back home with her family. He has been given another chance to ask for her forgiveness, but when he sees Alexia he is taken back for a bit.
