A gradual, often unconscious process of absorption or learning.
It’s been six months since the trauma of Karma. Both Jamie and Ryan are slowly but steadily regaining their footing. When they have time alone, everything seems just as it had been before Christmas. But their alone time is severely compromised. With each of them playing a varsity sport, their weekends are always given over to their teams—rather than each other. Since neither of them would consider quitting, their options are few. So they’re committed to wringing every bit of togetherness out of their schedules that they can.
Mia and Jordan have a lot of time alone—but Jordan’s working so hard she spends much of that time sound asleep. The demands on her body and mind are overwhelming, but Mia’s learning how to be a supportive partner…despite being disconnected from all of her friends and family. Luckily, loving Jordan makes every sacrifice easily worth it. Catherine’s having a tougher time of it. Her divorce is causing her more turmoil than she’d expected, and having her lover so far away
makes her feel very, very alone. Maybe it would be better if she started over. Conor’s all in favor of that…especially if he can be part of her restart.
Every member of the clan experiences some growth pains, but one thing holds them all together. Love is the answer, no matter the question.
