Eden Carlbough, who has been forced to make a new start in life after her father's sudden death. Faced with a mountain of unexpected debts, Eden has sold off her family home and possessions, and moved from her plush house in Philadelphia to a cabin in a summer girl's camp. Partnered with her best friend Candy, Eden has started Camp Liberty, and is determined to make it work. Terrified but resolute, Eden sets out down a path of self-discovery.
And one of Eden's discoveries is her camp's handsome neighbour, orchard owner Chase Elliot. After falling from one of Chase's apple trees and into his arms, Eden finds herself flooded with new and powerful feelings. But a recent failed engagement has destroyed Eden's faith in men, so she hides and fights the love that blooms in her heart for Chase.
But Eden has found her way into Chase's heart as well, and he isn't about to let her slip away from him so easily. He can see that Eden must prove to herself that she can make it in the world on her own, but he's determined to make this vibrant and courageous beauty his own. However it won't be easy for Eden and Chase to get their happily ever after. Eden's mistrust of men and her fear of depending on anyone for support may just keep these two apart, and stop them from finding paradise in each other's arms!
