Elizabeth Barnes life is about to change big time. They say when one door closes another door opens. For Elizabeth that is true. She’s fired from her job in San Francisco and her name is mud in most circles. She starts reaching out to contacts looking for a new job. And then she gets a call from an unlisted number. When she answers it the man on the other end says he is her Uncle Rowan in Britain and it concerns her father. Her father didn’t have a brother (or at least that is what she always believed). He tells her she has inherited a piece of land from her father. She doesn’t believe it at first but then it pans out.
She flies off to meet her Uncle and Aunt Trudy and see the land. Only planning on spending a few days in the small town of Fargrove they live in and then going on a vacation in the UK. She soon learns the story of her family and it’s shocking. She decides to stay for a few more days. She also finds a puppy in the middle of nowhere. She ends up keeping him at her Uncles house for the time being. She’s still looking for her next job and growing closer to her new family and puppy.
And then she starts seeing James and they fall for each other. Elizabeth has also been painting with her uncle, who is well known in the area for his paintings and the local art museum shows them and some sell. Now months later with a puppy who adores her, a new man that she has fallen for, new friends and her new family, she gets a job offer back in San Francisco and she needs to be back in ten days. James tries to convince her to stay but she feels she needs to go. Saying goodbye is hard for her and leaving James and her dog tear her apart. Will she really go and leave everything new that she has built. When one door closes another door opens.
