Lucinda Bell wants nothing more than to follow in her father's footsteps and practice law. But in 1893, the state of Virginia won't allow a woman lawyer. So she leaves her family and fiance and buys a dying practice in Massachusetts, determined to prove herself capable of succeeding at the profession--if she can find acceptance and safety as Loveland's sole lady lawyer first.
Quiet, handsome Matthew Templin, a local carpenter with a questionable past and a potentially dangerous need for a lawyer, is captivated by Lucinda. But he also knows she's above his touch--and that a hidden truth may destroy her career and possibly his own life.
As ambitions collide, Lucinda faces a choice whether to give up her dream--or give up the love of her life.
