A beautiful farmer's daughter. A handsome man with a past about to make the biggest mistake of his life.
Jonathan Mahoney starts a new life in Knoll with a farm and a new name. Meeting Magnolia Winters is like getting hit by lightning. He can't imagine his life without her. He spends the next year courting her while building his farm and putting money away for a rainy day. But after they're married, he gets cocky and spends everything they have on the next crop. No one ever warned him about corn blight. In the blink of an eye their entire crop is up in smoke, literally, as he has to burn their fields to keep it from spreading. Angry and frustrated he does the unthinkable--he leaves his wife to make money in the city. But one thing leads to another and before he knows it five years has flown by.
Magnolia Winters marries Keith Larson in the hopes of giving Venus a father. It's been nine years since Jonathan left and disappeared. Then he drags them to Laramy on a vacation with the mysterious Oswald Christoyannopoulos, a wealthy rancher looking for the love of his life. Little does she know that Oswald is Jonathan or that he's been searching for her for four years.
A rich rancher trying to make things right with his wife and daughter. A single mother trying to protect her heart. An old wound is about to open and finally heal.
