Three women, united by love and kinship, struggle to conform to the social norms of the times in which they live. In 1931 Katherine Henderson leaves behind her small town in Kansas and the marriage proposal of a local boy to live on her own and work at the Sears & Roebuck glove counter in Chicago. There she meets Annie - a bold, outspoken feminist who challenges Katherine´s idea of who she thinks she is and what she thinks she wants in life. In 1997 Katherine´s daughter, Joan, travels to Lawrence, Kansas, to clean out her estranged mother´s house. Hidden away in an old suitcase, she finds a wooden box containing trinkets and a packet of sealed letters to a person identified only by a first initial. Joan reads the unsent letters and discovers a woman completely different from the aloof and unyielding mother of her youth - a woman who had loved deeply and lost that love to circumstances beyond her control. Now she just has to find the strength to use the healing power of empathy and forgiveness to live the life she´s always wanted to live. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Lisa Larsen.

Lord Vincent Prescot´s life couldn´t be better. Thriving investments, well-respected by his peers, and mind blowing sex with a man who submits to his every desire - what more could he want? Lord Oliver Marsden should be more than happy with his life. He´s been in love with Vincent for over a decade, and six months ago the impossible happened and they became lovers. But since then, nothing has changed. More specifically, Vincent hasn´t changed. Oliver has tried to be patient - it took a lot for Vincent to accept the fact he preferred men. But what felt like a tiny distance between them six months ago now feels like an ever-widening chasm. Why can´t Vincent stay the night? Is it too much to ask for Vincent to call him Oliver and not Marsden? He knows Vincent cares for him, but does Vincent love him? Then Vincent´s father asks him for a favor - one that involves marriage. If Vincent agrees, he´ll have the respect he´s craved from his father his entire life, but he could lose Oliver. Nor does Oliver make the decision easy. To keep Oliver, he´ll have to do more than deny his father. He´ll have to give Oliver his heart.
