Grace grew up in an orphanage, but she found herself a happy, stable family when she married Donato, an Italian millionaire, and gave birth to their son. But her happiness was short-lived-their son died as an infant. The days that followed were full of grief for Grace...and then she discovered that Donato was having an affair. It was all too much for her, and she left Italy. That was one year ago...and now her mother-in-law, who was always warm and loving to Grace, has passed away. Grace returns to Italy for the funeral, where she sees Donato again. He's just as kind and charismatic as ever, and the memories come flooding back.
