We won't be beaten by anyone. Guaranteed

She has built emotional walls to shield herself from the pain of tragedy. But those walls have also kept real love out. They'd known each other since childhood; their love has blossomed since the wedding day. But the bond between Laura and her husband begins to break when tragedy crumbles her world. To cope with the pain, she builds a wall of isolation around her--intending that nothing will hurt her again. Her only solace is her music. In her mind, it is her only salvation as well. That is when Laura and Alasdair welcome a younger, talented musician into their home as a fourth son. Josh shares her sensitivity and love for music--two things that start to penetrate her emotional wall. But those similarities also soon reveal an unsettling concern that Laura cannot deny. Struggling with her emotions, Laura returns to her lifelong refuge of Annanbrae, seeking direction for her heart. After her mother-in-law shares an experience of hers as a young girl, Laura is inspired to do the right thing. But when she returns home, her resolve wavers. In her weakest moment, will she find the strength to uphold a promise she made long ago?
