When the pain of memories and loss become too much for Christie, she hops on a bus and runs away from New York. She ends up in Kentucky at Winding Creek Farm, the last known address of her oldest sister Judith who ran away from home as a teenager.
Garrett is surprised when Christie shows up claiming to be his dead wife's sister. He'll brook no interference from Judith's family and doesn't want Christie causing problems for his daughter Hannah.
Garrett, Hannah and Christie are all wary of trusting in each other. They each hold secrets too painful to divulge, but share they must if they want to heal and somehow become a family.
