Jillian Spencer is determined to make it as a topnotch newspaper reporter, but in 1940 that’s no easy task. Her chance comes when the president of the United States arrives to dedicate the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.

The Tuckaseegee flood, a catastrophic occurrence happened two days earlier leaving the mountain folks lives in shambles. While gathering information for the article covering the flood, Jill finds her own life in danger.

Park Ranger Cameron Murphy is thankful to be at the right place at the right time. He soon learns the woman he rescued has a tender heart deeply touched by his neighbor’s suffering. He’s more than willing to help with her newspaper article, but as her dark eyes and determination pierce right to his soul, dare he hope she’ll turn her tender heart toward him?
