When she learns she is pregnant, she tried to get in touch with Mark. She is told he is in Europe and no one at the magazine will give her an address. She gives up, has the baby and gives Mark's name as the father. Years later, she is running the inn and trying to deal with her selfish step-sisters who are angry that none of the inn belongs to her.
