Leaving Dallas behind, Casey Hunt drives to Eden, Texas, praying that her assignment as the temporary manager of the small town's only diner will be successful. But when the diner's employees quit before she sets foot inside, she knows her luck has preceded her. With disaster greeting her at every turn, will Casey ever find a place she can call home?
Sheriff Rod Harmon witnessed enough big-city values in college to last a lifetime. His fiancee's infidelity and his peers' attitudes about small-town hicks cut deep, and Rod returned to Eden with a different worldview. But when Casey Hunt arrives, he finds himself struggling with his own judgmental attitudes about the beautiful woman who looks like a hippie. Will Rod overcome his bitterness? Will Casey's hunt for home ever end?
