After his case was pronounced medically hopeless, the boy s desperate mother had organized a prayer crusade to Sister Catherine, leading to his miraculous recovery. The letters Olivia holds are the evidence that Catherine gave birth at age seventeen to a child, a son, and gave him up for adoption. Olivia knows the identity of the young man who fathered Catherine s child: Alex Gannon, who went on to become a world famous doctor, scientist, and inventor holding medical patents. Now, two generations later, thirty one year old pediatrician Dr. Monica Farrell, Catherine s granddaughter, stands as the rightful heir to what remains of the family fortune.
