Sammi Jo Crawford returns to her hometown in western North Carolina, divorced, disillusioned and determined to start a new life as a woman who will focus on her career as a dancer and dance instructor, a woman who will never again be subservient or subordinate her hopes and dreams to the wishes of others. |
No sooner has she opened her dance studio when trouble descends: odd, possibly criminal, activities in the adjacent business, her studio lease is threatened, her grandfather's health deteriorates, and participation in a protest march results in her appearance before Judge Garroway, a spurned suitor. Not surprisingly, the old wounds that reopen, the new unexpected feelings that emerge, all threaten the emotionally uninvolved career woman Sammi Jo had planned to become.
Will her dance with destiny lead her on the right path or into the arms of danger?
