Molly lives alone in Portland, but her heart is back in Franklin, Tennessee, where five years ago she walked away from a man she cannot forget, a rare sort of love she hasn't found since.
Ryan lives in Franklin again after several years in Kentucky and a broken engagement. At least in Franklin he can visit The Bridge - the oldest bookstore in historic downtown Franklin - and remember the long hours he and Molly once spent there.
Now, though, the bookstore is in financial trouble and with the bank pulling the lease and about to take the owner's house he is forced to consider suicide. But before he can decide, a terrible tragedy occurs…
Then suddenly, in the face of adversity, miracles begin to unfold.
