Widow Marjorie Gloriam is a top marriage counseling professor who can overcome everyone’s loneliness but her own. Mired in grief, guilt, and her deep fear of abandonment, can she learn from her counseling students, who are rebuilding their own relationships with her advice? Colm McCloskey, a visiting Irish professor and man of letters, longs for more than words on a page after the death of his wife. One day, determined to confront his phobias one by one, he heads toward a horse farm to cure his terror of horses. When Marjorie is thrown from the saddle, only Colm sees her head hit the rail. Will both be able to overcome their fear and learn to trust again — through each other?
