Abandoned as a child by her alcoholic parents, Gillian Grant was raised by her grandmother in a beach house in California. As an adult, in tribute to Gramís memory, Gillian wishes to restore the house to its former splendor. But she canít do it alone, and hires Dusty Bradshaw to help her.
Gillian and Dusty have nothing in common, except the restoration of the house. Gillian suffers from anorexia and is in denial. While she has a strong faith in God, Dusty is an unbeliever. Add to the complicated mess Gillianís confusing feelings for her childhood friend Josh and the sudden, unwanted appearance of Gillianís mother Betsy, who claims the house is hers. And she intends to sell it.
Gillian always dreamed of her wedding in her grandmotherís garden overlooking the Pacific. Will there be a wedding? Who will capture Gillianís heart - her stable, longtime friend Josh or Dusty, a new Christian, who has kept secrets from her? And who holds the deed to the house?
