For years, Leonie Corinth lived the best of all possible lives in New York City, married to a successful investment banker and running her own Soho antique shop. Now Leonie's happiness is gone and, as she faces the aftershocks of a bitter divorce, she realizes she must leave Manhattan. She intends to build a new life for herself, and to never again depend on a man. Moving to the beautiful countryside of upstate New York, Leonie buys an old, rundown Octagon-style house that she can restore while restoring her own battered soul. On the way to a meeting with her architect, Leonie accidentally hits another car. The accident is minor and easily forgotten, except for the alluring blue-green eyes of the other driver. In an inescapable twist of fate, the driver, Sam Nicholson, is the architect. Trapped in a loveless marriage, his creativity stifled by his wife's demands, and wishing for another life, Sam finds in Leonie a talented collaborator and an understanding listener. As they work closely together to make Leonie's dream house a reality, they realize they have fallen in love. Their love has emerged against all odds, but can it last till the end of time?
