It is True Dickinson's 43rd birthday, and her best friends have gathered on this snowy night in Cape Cod at a trendy neighborhood restaurant to celebrate. True has never felt more alone.It's been eight years since the death of her husband, leaving her to raise their son on her own. Both her son and her small business are thriving, and True's life is full. Coming up on 43 makes True realize that there is an empty space in her life that friends and family cannot fill. She feels her youth and beauty slipping away, and the possibility for romance has never seemed more remote.But everything changes the moment True and her beloved assistant, Isabelle, slide into a snow-filled ditch on the drive home. Saved by a young man she met earlier at the restaurant, True comes face to face with the opportunity to let love back into her life, that is, if she can overcome her own fears, and if these two spirits can find a way to tame each other's wild hearts and curb each other's supremely independent natures.
