When Stacy Williams wakes to hear the soft, plaintive weeping outside her bedroom window, she at first thinks  her newly divorced mother has wandered out into the overgrown garden.  Next morning, she pleads to go home, back to the beaches and palm trees of California.  There are so many reasons to leave,--shifting furniture, flickering visions of the past, doors slamming shut, voices drifting up from downstairs, fingers tapping on the rain streaked window.  But Stacy has one problem and one very good reason to stay; tall, dreamy blue-eyed Matt Stanton lives next door and seems to like her. A lot.
