Young Dinah's dream of ever leaving her small Southwest Florida town before and during the land boom of the twenties seems doomed when she finds herself pregnant by an unscrupulous, older man. Zach also has a dream. He wants to be his own man, go his own way. But when tragedy strikes Dinah's family, his soft heart won't allow him to walk away.
Then Tyler, an ambitious land developer, offers to buy Dinah's riverfront property, and her dream is revived. Although Zach abhors the selling of paradise for a quick buck and tries to change her mind, his main fear is losing Dinah. Tyler ups the ante by proposing, and Dinah is forced to choose between a man who can make her dream come true, or a man who's been there for every joy, every sorrow in her life. Sadly, she chooses the dream.
Years later, the stock market is soaring, Tyler's the wealthiest man in the county, and Dinah's had it up to her jeweled earlobes with the grand life. When Tyler and Zach decide to enter local politics, family drama increases. Will she support the candidate who wants to further develop the sun-kissed coast, or jeopardize her marriage by supporting the one who wants to preserve it for future generations?
