Life is full of possibilities for recent college graduate Autumn Hummel. But the path she expected to take after school turns in a different direction when she receives a mysterious letter. Jon McFarland, a man Autumn has never met, has left her his South Carolina plantation near Georgetown, her childhood vacationing spot.
