After catching her husband in bed with another woman at her twentieth high school reunion, Meredith Chapman files for divorce, packs up her two kids, and heads to a small west Texas town to start rebuilding her life.
Meredith attends the local college, where she meets Native American college professor Adam Lightfoot. Despite attempts to keep them apart by her meddling, bigoted mother, and rebellious teenage daughter, Meredith and Adam fall for one another with a love as hot and sizzling as a shooting star.
As focused as Adam is with helping Meredith become the parent she needs to be, he has unresolved issues of his own, including dealing with the death of his infant daughter from a previous marriage.
Together, they must learn to trust and communicate and, most importantly, to let go of the past and hold on to hopes and dreams of a brighter future.
A fiercely independent woman makes the decision to become artificially inseminated but the opinionated, conservative widower she’s met throws a monkey wrench into her plans. The stakes are high. She yearns for a child without the baggage of marriage. He insists on marriage without children.
