When David Carter, a wounded war veteran, is gunned down in the streets of Washington, D.C., his twin brother, Jonathan, loses his best friend.
Convinced that the Army nurse David met at the rehabilitation hospital and recently married is only after the Manhattan Carters’ wealth and power, Jonathan charges into Angie’s office at Walter Reed to deny her the estate … only to find out that David hid his family’s origins from her. The sister-in-law Jonathan had refused to meet for months confounds his expectations. Frail, beautiful, blonde Angie claims she wants nothing to do with the notoriety of her husband’s prominent family. But Jonathan is determined to fulfill his twin’s last request — to care for his wife — which now includes an unborn child. As their two worlds collide, and the media is stirred into a feeding frenzy, Jonathan’s heart is stirred by unexplainable longings for home and family. But will his twin’s lovely widow ever be able to see him without seeing his brother?
