A sweet romance with an important message. After his son’s dog is found by a woman on Cougar Mountain, Kellen and his son go to get the escape artist, a Border Collie. After five minutes, the woman, Zoey, tells him his son is dyslexic. She is a facilitator who helps people make the most of this gift, and quickly helps his son control his level of activity, so that he can sleep at night. Kellen doesn’t believe her, and leaves. But the storm has washed out the road, and he can’t leave Cougar Mountain, so returns. As his son learns to control his dyslexia, Kellen and Zoey begin to fall in love.

He nodded. She had seen Reese all of five minutes. How did she know this?
"Teachers get angry at him because he won't follow directions. He has a hard time going to sleep at night. And when you try to teach him something, he spins around, taps his fingers, goes upside down in his chair, and just won't sit still. He probably has no concept of time. Does any of that sound like Reese?"
