After years of caring for her mother, Susannah Pelton needs to experience life at its fullest. She's devised a list of adventures and she tackles them one by one. During a bridge jump she lands on rocks and breaks her arm, and when she moves on to her next quest--to create a lasting work of art--she becomes the wounded red bird who will heal Cherokee Ryan Whitepath's young daughter Nia from Separation Disorder, according to the hunky mosaic artist's grandmother.
Ryan reluctantly invites Susannah into his home on the pretext of providing art lessons in exchange for office work, but he's desperate to help his young daughter who shuns everyone but Susannah, who herself has experienced great loss. It's what Susannah has come for; it's another quest to complete and mark off her list. She'll only stay until Christmas. Love gets in the way, though, and Ryan must somehow convince her that life on Snowbird Mountain is the most rewarding quest of all.
