The only option is to move herself and her two children in with her mother until her estranged Aunt Jean, who lives in Texas Hill Country, offers her a farmhand job. Libby chooses Aunt Jean and soon finds herself in a place so unlike anywhere she’s ever been before.

On the farm, her aunt introduces her to the farm manager, James O’Connor, who soon puts her to work. James is gruff and unkempt, but Libby learns from locals that he’s considered quite the catch even though his own life is considered equally tragic.

Rated PG-13 for some suggestive references.
