In 1890 Massachusetts, Fiona Downey was no ordinary young woman. She had worked hard all her life to be admitted into the prestigious college where her proud father taught -- in spite of those who sniffed that it was no place for a lady. But when her father tragically dies, Fiona believes that the future she's always wanted has slipped from her grasp. Destitute, her only choice is to take a teaching job in a rural area of Michigan - populated by few farms and even fewer people.
It is there that Fiona's education begins anew. Living with the Haydn family in Paradise Falls, she is drawn into their complex relationships, especially the uneasy dynamic that seems to pit brother against brother: the older, taciturn Grayson, and Fleming, a handsome charmer. Attracted to Grayson - but pursued by Fleming - Fiona is torn between her desire and her lifelong hopes. Now she must decide where her true love lies - and whether that love is worth sacrificing her dearest dreams.
