This was the promise that Steven made to Katherine ten years ago when they joined
hands in the ruins of the old abbey church. Standing before the high altar,
they were handfasted in the Celtic custom and engaged to be married when they
finished college. A yellow rose bush blooming beside the ruined altar became a
symbol for the promise they made to each other that day.
“Whenever you see a yellow rose, remember me…”
Now, a decade has passed and Katherine has become a successful doctor. She has not
forgotten the promise that she made to Steven and has been waiting, hoping, and
praying that he would keep his word to find her. Then, on her birthday, she
discovers a vase of yellow roses on her doorstep. Could the love of her life
have found her?
Or are the flowers from Bill Wilson, another suitor who has entered Katherine’s
life? Bill has known Katherine since high school and has long planned to wed
her. Now, he’s ready to stake his claim.
Katherine rebuffs Bill’s advances, and their conflict turns violent. As drama rises,
Katherine must find the strength to follow her heart and decide on the future
that she really wants.
