(From the publisher):
All she wanted was to be someone's little girl....
Fate made her a lonely orphan, yearning for the embrace of a real family and a loving home. But a golden chance at a new life may not be enough to escape the dark secrets of her past....
She was the answer to all her new parents' dreams — but as fragile as a butterfly.
For as long as she could remember, Janet's world had been the orphanage, full of cruel jokes and silent wishes for the day she'd have a family of her own. She hardly believed it when Sanford and Celine Delorice chose her to be their daughter, whisking her away from her tragic past.
Her new father is handsome and kind, and though Celine is confined to a wheelchair, she is the most beautiful and elegant woman Janet has ever seen. Soon Janet learns the routines of their grand estate, including those of the studio where she takes ballet lessons from a strict teacher. Celine is convinced Janet will one day dazzle audiences as a ballerina, just as she did before her accident. Eager to bring sunshine to all their days, Janet tries with all her might to please them. But she is dancing on a fragile web of happiness, never knowing what might happen if one glittering strand should break....
