She embraced fame but fled from love . . .
Eighteen years ago, Tess McPhail left tiny Wintergreen, Missouri, for the city lights and never looked back. Now one of country music's biggest stars, "Mac" McPhail has little time for love, children or family - that is until her sisters insist she comes home to help care for their widowed mother.
At first she meets with an indifferent reception, especially from the handsome, divorced Kenny Kronek, whom she taunted mercilessly at high school. Then as the weeks go by she begins to appreciate the values of family and community, and, unexpectedly, she finds love.
But back in the city, will there be room for caring and commitment in her glamorous world, or is Mac destined always to be alone?
