'The best solution was to bring you both together and let him take care of you.'

After the accident Kathleen knew very well that her dreams of a musical career were ended - so why did Sister Cecily practically force her onto Morgan Llwewllyn, the world-famous composer of musicals?

What I liked about the hero: tormented hero. While Morgan was already a commercially successful composer for theater musicals (ala-Andrew Lloyd Webber),
