Anna Sanchez, a recent college graduate, has inherited the family cattle ranch. Having promised her mother she would take care of it, she is now faced with a tough choice. She is a city girl, and running a cattle business certainly isn't in her plans.
A lot of repairs need to be done and she hires Steve Johnson, a local handyman. Their first encounter leaves them both at a disadvantage. Through the summer's adventures, including a wildlife encounter that turns deadly, and a shadow from her past, Anna will learn that things don't always go according to even the most organized aspirations.
