Callida Prophet never would have suspected that her stubborn, sullen employer had such a tender way with words. He certainly doesn't show much affection toward beautiful six-year-old Becky, Callida's charge and his only child. But in the love letters he wrote years ago - which Becky finds and asks Callida to read to her - he is a completely different man. Poetic. Passionate. Utterly devoted. And suddenly, Callida sees this moody, mysterious widower with new, more loving eyes.
