We meet a pair of twins: Anne Farrell and Beth Montoya.
Anne is independent and a bit of a swinger. And single.
Beth Montoya is married, to Rafe and a homemaker and nurturer.
Rafe Montoya is a lawyer trying to help kids get out of the gang cults. He has had a hard life getting himself out of a gang when he was younger. And most everyone he has known or loved has left him. He does not let himself "need" anyone.
Not even his wife whom he loves.
When his wife and sister-in-law are homeward bound from California to Arizona there is a train derailment. He is told that his wife, Beth did not make it. Jake Roth pulled Anne out of the wreck. Rafe is determined to take care of Anne as he knew Beth would want him to.
Therein lies a wonderful story of shared grief, found love and emotional growth. Rafe has to take care of everyone, therein lies his survival. And the possible breakup of his marriage.
Beth was a doll designer for Downs-syndrome girls. Anne operated the business for Beth out of Chicago. And was acqainted with Jake Roth. Anne seemed to know that Beth had problems of dependancy.
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED - great characters - emotional upheaval and growth.
