He Belongs to Me is a love story . . . a tale of betrayal and deception and of a young mother's determination to recover what belongs to her.

Forced to leave her baby and tricked into relinquishing her parental rights, four years later Catherine Boyd is back and she'll do anything to regain custody of her son--even reconcile with the husband falsely accused of killing their son's twin. All in the name of love for a little boy, generations of pain and tragedy are exposed in a courtroom drama.


Catherine graduates from college, eager to start a new life with her six-year-old son, Drew. But when she tries to bring him home, her parents refuse to relinquish control of the grandson they'd raised.


Wrongly accused of a horrible crime, Thomas Boyd has buried himself in his career, determined to forget his painful past and the family he lost. But now, five years later, Catherine is back, requesting his help to regain custody of their son--custody he thought she had.


Though older and wiser, when courtroom battles reveal lies and secrets and generations of pain, will Thomas and Catherine find only more tragedy and loss, or will old wounds finally heal?
