She went because she thought she could start a new life there with her newborn son. However, one day while cleaning up, she went out front and froze where she stood. The man on the terrace, staring out at the sea... His name was Gifford, and he almost drove her mad with his love. They broke up a year and a half ago, and he cruelly ignored Cassandra's letter telling that he had a son. So why has he suddenly reappeared in her life after all this time?
