When the father she never knew dies and leaves her a gold mine, recently divorced Maggie Stevens heads for the remote community of Eureka, Colorado to claim her inheritance and to solve the mystery of the man who abandoned the family when Maggie was only three days old. She hopes time in the mountains will help her figure out what to do now that life hasn’t worked out the way she planned. In Eureka, Maggie meets a number of people who touch her life in different ways: bitter librarian Cassie Wynock, who clings to her pride in her family’s past, while mourning her secret love affair with Maggie’s father; town mayor Lucille Theriot, who’s trying to figure out how to heal old wounds with the wayward daughter and grandson who have moved in with her; and Jameso Clark, whose love-hate relationship with her father intrigues Maggie, and whose attraction for her she finds both frightening and exhilarating. As Maggie confronts the sins of her father and the mistakes of her own past, she learns to look at life differently, and discovers it can take a village – or one small mountain town – to heal a heart.
