The year is 1955. At the age of 45 years, Samuel "Sam" Wakeforest has everything a man could ever want--a tight knit extended family, blue skies, land that takes his breath away, he is his own boss, and he has a purpose for his life. And yet, his loving but sometimes over bearing older sister Tessa would say that he lacks one thing--a wife and a family to call his own. And Tessa's new sister-in-law Olivia Delaney is just such a prospect. Olivia is shy and plain by her own reckoning--a maiden spinster in her mid thirties. However Tessa sees potential in Olivia--especially for her brother Sam, if his sister Tessa can convince him of that. And Sam's and Olivia's well ordered individual lives will inevitably begin to change as they forge a deepening bond of love when they blend their lives together.
