SYNOPSIS: A modern day romance set from the pace of the past
A woman inherits her five times great grandmother's antique women's secretary desk. She discovers a diary hidden in a secret compartment in its upper carvings. The diary contains a year from her grandmother's life with her husband on his ranch outside Amarillo, Texas before the Civil War.
The woman is outraged at the story contained in her grandmother's diary. She feels compelled to vindicate her grandmother's name from the story written in the diary. She sets out to see how the husband's side of the family has dealt with her grandmother's reputation over the years. Her trip of discovery brings her into direct contact with the current owner of the ranch. She finds the story contained in her grandmother's dairy was incomplete. The Ranch owner's mother helps her complete the story with another story contained in another diary left at the ranch by her grandmother.
The woman's encounter with the current owner of the ranch brings a surprise. The woman is almost the physical, mirror image of her grandmother. The owner of the ranch feels compelled to have the real-life woman to the cold, oil paint of an old portrait of her grandmother. At first, he has trouble separating the real from the fantasy concerning her. They both find they have to compromise to sate each other's needs to form a real-life partnership.
