Patience Quinlan moves to Culpepper, Wyoming, with only two expectations: That she would get out from under her father's thumb, and that she would open a bakery with two of her favorite people. Once those two things are accomplished, she is content. When a young ballerina walks into the bakery one morning arguing with her father about ballet camp, Patience immediately offers to help, remembering her desires to dance when she was small.
Ryan Bassett is a single parent with way too much to do to be able to get his pink-clad ballerina daughter to ballet camp every day all summer. When the pretty girl behind the bakery counter offers to help him and his daughter out, he's skeptical at first but realizes she could be the answer to his prayers. Will the friendship formed between woman and girl lead to a special relationship between Ryan and Patience? Or will the strain of the past keep them apart?
