Career is top priority to beautiful and self-sufficient Dr. Sydney Ludwick (Lisa Hartman, Knots Landing). Ever since medical school, her flourishing profession has taken precedence over personal attachments. Altruistic, overworked, and dedicated to a fault, Syd is inspired by the final words of a dear patient. The advice she takes to heart is to relax, appreciate life, and take time off for herself. Opportunity arises when Syd receives an invitation to her twentieth high school reunion. But that means returning to the petty squabbles of her rural hometown rivals, reacquainting herself with Gus Martin (Dale Midkiff, Love Comes Softly), the fondly remembered childhood sweetheart she left behind, and reuniting with her estranged mother Helen (Emmy winner Rue McClanahan, The Golden Girls), a widow shadowed by her husband's death and a troubling family secret. When the prodigal success arrives in Bloomfield, she's surprised to find her family home turned into a bed-and-breakfast run by her mother. Syd's also taken aback by her still deep feelings for Gus, now a widower with a six-year-old son. But as she adjusts to the past, Syd struggles to reconnect with her emotionally distant mother. Only one other person in Bloomfield shares Helen's secret: Ed Jenkins (Don Harvey, She Hate Me), head pastor of the local church. Sworn to confessional privacy, he urges Syd to make amends and discover for herself why the Ludwick family ties have been wounded. As a weekend of personal and professional revelations unfold, and as unexpected romance blossoms, Syd discovers more about herself, her past, and the possibilities of the heart than she ever imagined.
