For Shari Brock, who loses her on-again-off-again husband in a tragic accident, change arrives with his illegitimate daughter, Erica. Meanwhile, Shari’s son, Jason, embarks on a cockeyed crime spree that makes him the laughingstock of the town. But that isn’t all: the local sawmill has been taken over by a multinational corporation, a wolf appears out of nowhere, and the yearly town celebration becomes a battlefield.
Vivid characters lend both grace and humor to this romance of the western heart: Ronald Dailey, a sawmill manager who falls in love at first sight with a mysterious environmentalist; Marguerite Brock, Shari’s mother-in-law, who accepts the lonely choices that have made her the richest woman in town until an old love reawakens her; Dave Phillips, a cowboy whose horse has tragically betrayed him, and others–all surrounded by the stunning beauty of Yellowstone National Park.
