For Abby MacKenzie, a few months working in an apple orchard -- far away from Los Angeles -- may be just what the doctor ordered. Hard physical labor, fresh air and nothing to remind her of the trouble at home.
So she drives across the country and arrives at Templeton Orchard. The large Templeton clan is warm and welcoming -- except Dr. Jake Templeton, who doesn't want Abby anywhere near his unhappy young daughter.
However, as the busy apple season progresses, the little girl reaches out to Abby. And Jake finds himself falling for the sensitive, beautiful woman who's haunted by her past.
