Tribute by Nora Roberts tells the story of Cilla McGowan, a former child star, who comes home to Virgina's Shenandoah Valley to restore her grandmother's former farmhouse. Cilla's grandmother was the famous Hollywood star Janet Hardy. Ford Sawyer is Cilla's new across the street neighbor. Ford and Cilla are instantly attracted to one another. Cilla must learn to trust not only Ford, but her father, who she hasn't ever really spent any time with her entire life. Cilla goes from being a total loner to having family, friends, and a wonderful lover.
Cilla finds that someone is not so excited that she has decided to restore her grandmother's former farmhouse. Injuries to workers, graffiti to her car and fence, and damage to the home almost push Cilla to stop her process with her new home. With the support of Ford and her family, Cilla continues her dream, learning for the first time what it's like to have help without strings.
In addition to romance, Roberts throws in a bit of mystery and danger to make a very interesting and fast read.
