--《Library Journal》


Emma Montague終於逃離她嚴厲的英國上流家庭生活獨自前往紐約。遠離父母的控制與期望,她感到從未擁有的解放與自由,將自己置身在奢華時尚的曼哈頓世界,高薪的工作、頂級公寓及挑不完的完美男友人選。但冷酷無情且永無止盡追求金錢的慾望,讓她意識到這不是內心所追尋的。Emma再度搬家,這次她前往位於康乃狄克州的Westport小鎮,美麗純樸的景色完全與英國及曼哈頓不同。獨自一人且沒有工作的她向名叫Dominic的當地工人租了一間殘破的小屋,Dominic是一位單親爸爸,他自信、居家且深愛自己的兒子,長期相處使兩人的友誼逐漸加溫,也讓Emma感受到家的溫暖與幸福感,但命運的安排險讓她失去一切,為了嚮往的家庭生活,Emma決定向命運迎戰。

Eight years ago, Emma Montague left behind the strict confines of her upper-crust English life - and rather dull boyfriend - and moved to New York City, where she immediately found success in the world of finance. But her soulless, cut-throat, all-consuming job has only led to another life she didn't want.

Answering an online ad, Emma finds a tiny beach cottage to rent in the small town of Westport, Connecticut. It needs work - lots of work. But it's the perfect project to satisfy Emma's passion for interior design and gardening, if her new landlord, Dominic, is agreeable to the small changes she yearns to make.

To Emma, Dominic is also something of a fixer-upper. A local handyman with a six-year-old son, he's a world away from the men she should be interested in, but he's comfortable in his own skin, confident, quiet and kind. Slowly, over a shared garden, time spent with his son and late-night conversations, Emma finds herself falling for Dominic.

From friends to lovers happens as naturally as the changing seasons. But laying down roots doesn't come easily when two lives as different as theirs merge into one. And Emma will realize that the seeds of happiness must be nurtured and cherished to grow into something strong enough to shelter all their hopes and dreams . . .
