Claire Turner, a private nurse, is running away from her past. As a child she witnessed a murder and she has been in witness protection ever since. George Bellamy is dying of brain cancer. Instead of spending his final days in treatment, George hires Claire to be his nurse. George hires Claire not for her medical skills, but because he believes she is the perfect woman for his lonely grandson, Ross, who is returning from a tour in Afghanistan. Claire has always managed to avoid becoming emotionally involved with her clients, however, she soon finds herself falling in love with the Bellamy family. George is also hoping to reconnect with his estranged brother Charles who he has not spoken to in 55 years.
