Synopsis

Eric Frigaard is awakened from the deep sleep of exhaustion by a loud pounding on his front door and discovers a despondent woman waiting to be invited inside. Whether by chance or destiny, Rosemarie has entered Bent, New Mexico, and Eric's life, on what portends to be the worst day of her life. She has shown up a year late on her promise to serve as a landscape consultant for Eric's twenty-acre self-sustaining farm in the foothills of the remote Sacramento Mountains. She is ill and penniless; he has a reputation for not being very friendly and preferring to keep to himself.So begins the story of two loners, damaged by the vagaries of life, whose dreary souls evolve from mutual distrust into a relationship of growing respect and love.
