But rookie paramedic Peter Webster takes the emergency call, and helps the young woman, Shiela Arsenault, to survive. After the accident, she haunts his thoughts, despite his misgivings about getting involved with a patient. Soon he is embroiled in an intense love affair and in Shiela's troubled life.

Eighteen years later, Shiela is long gone and Peter is raising their daughter, Rowan, alone. But Rowan is veering dangerously off course, and for the first time in their quiet life together Peter fears for her future. He seeks out the only person who may be able to help Rowan, although Shiela's return is sure to unleash all the questions Peter has been carefully keeping at bay: why would a mother leave her family? How did the marriage of two people deeply in love unravel?

A novel of trespass and forgiveness, buried secrets and the seismic force of the truth, RESCUE is the compelling story of a family trying to understand its own fractured past and begin again.
