Quando apprende che la nonna Samantha è stata ricoverata in ospedale, Jennifer si trasferisce nella vecchia casa d'infanzia, una magnifica villa sul lago, per assisterla e per starle vicina il più possibile. Lì, nel luogo dove ha trascorso gli anni più spensierati e gioiosi, trova ad attenderla qualcosa che le cambierà la vita: Sam le ha scritto una serie di lettere, attraverso le quali racconta alla nipote la storia della sua vita, una vita ben diversa da quella che tutti hanno conosciuto fino a quel momento. È una storia di intrighi e desideri proibiti, di un segreto di famiglia nascosto per decenni e soprattutto è la storia dell'amore più grande e intenso che Jennifer abbia mai sentito. E Jennifer imparerà a credere in una seconda opportunità.

”Please don’t shut out love- it’s the best thing about life.” The world works in mysterious ways, friends. And I believe in that saying now more than ever.
