In Oregon's timber country, inside a smoky bar, stands proprietor Tory Duncan. Once a hair's breadth from the Miss America crown, she's still just as beautiful and still searching for happiness.
Joe Brigham, a forthright and handsome man from a logging family, divorced, and father of one, regards her with a love deep and pure.
But trading in her search for an uncertain future, no matter the joy Joe promises to provide, seems more than Tory can afford.
