Rescued from a storage closet at work.

Book 0 of the Landry series. Published fifth, but first chronologically.

From the back of the book:
Her high school graduation just days away, Gabriel is blissfully happy, despite the ever-widening rift between her Mama and her conniving, whisky-drinking Daddy. Then rich cannery owner Octavious Tate surprises her near a secluded pond and shatters her sweet innocence, forever....

Pregnant and desolate, Gabriel agrees to let Octavious's frigid wife Gladys pretend she's the one who's expecting, and claim the baby as her own. Hiding in a tiny room in the Tate mansion, Gabriel is miserable, awaiting visits from her Mama, whose reputation as a Cajun healer gives her an excuse to treat Gladys Tate's "pregnancy." But nothing is more wrenching than the moment when Gladys takes baby Paul away forever.

A twilight gloom settles in Gabriel's soul, until a hunting party brings handsome, gentle Creole millionaire Pierre Dumas to the bayou. Falling desperately in love, she does not heed the warning voice: he may bring more grief than she can bear....
