  When her final class of the day dismissed, Peggy went home with an unusual story to tell her mother but she didn't share the reaction she'd had to his handshake. The lunch had changed her routine and shattered the solitude she'd so skillfully developed. There was never time for friends, except for her church activities, and she succeeded in avoiding close relationships. She devoted her time to her daughter.

  When Peggy Stewart - a young widow with a beautiful daughter Samantha - encounters a handsome stranger on her break between classes, she yearns to know more about him. Dispite growing feelings of anxiety, Peggy spends time with Sam Merriman, a Vietnam War veteran. The two of them fall in love, and a whirlwind romance ensues.

  Along the way to their happily ever after, Sam must battle his feelings of inadequacy as Peggy struggles with the guilt about honoring her late husband's memory. Sam soon realizes he's ready to become Samantha's father and Peggy's husband, but will Peggy be able to move past her doubts and insecurities in order to walk down the aisle?
