Finding love in middle age can be wonderfully unexpected and heartbreaking. Leah Rose is a never-married microbiologist in a rut. She returns to her parent’s summer home to rest and recharge her batteries. She meets, and is reluctantly wooed, by Oliver Marcus – an English teacher and year-round resident. He has never married, lives in the house he grew up in, and cares for his mentally handicapped sister.
