Molly Eden had survived the car crash when she was younger, but was left unable to have any more children - and the baby she was carrying died in the crash. She got on with her life, miserable about her deficiency and left with a residual distrust of men - she'd been fooled once but not again!
Molly owned Garden of Eden, a successful florist shop in Oklahoma City; her friend Cora and Cora's husband, Harry, were her employees there. One day, from the formerly empty house next door to her own, a small boy ran - and asked Molly if she was his "Momma". As it turned out, this was Joey, the 3-year-old son of Joseph Rossi, who had just moved in. Joseph was gorgeous, desperately loved his son, was an architect who had opened his own business in town, but had a past that he was escaping. The woman who was mother to Joey was still in Mississippi and had agreed that Joseph could have full custody of their son.
Meeting Molly made Joseph intrigued in this tall, slender and lovely woman - but her distrust of men got in the way for quite a while. However, the little boy was a totally different story - Molly was completely taken in by him. Over time, though, both Molly and Joseph began to feel stirrings of awareness of each other. The receptionist at Joseph's business, an older woman whose divorce stemmed from an unfaithful husband, meddled in what wasn't her business and caused a terrible thing to occur. Plus, the doctor had to come out to visit Joseph and his son a couple of times. All of these things brought Molly and Joseph closer because he turned to her for help - and Molly was too far gone to refuse him.
With all of this going on, and the two main characters being so much in love with one another, it just needed some special touches to bring the Happy Ever After ending - and Joseph added those touches!
