When Jessie O'Brien rumbled the ambulance into the Emergency Room parking lot, she knows she's affecting someone's future. Little did she know that future was hers.
Jarrett Collins, the man she always thought she would marry but who left her suddenly years earlier, greets the stretcher.
When Jessie O'Brien was a little girl, she walked down the aisle as a flower girl with Jarrett Collins. In the years that followed, she always beleived she would marry him someday. Instead she received a broken heart when he suddenly left her without any explanation.
Now a successful physician, Jarrett has come to Wisconsin for change, both in his life and his career. Jessie is now a hospital administrator at the very hospital Jarrett is beginning his new role as the Head of Emergency Medicine. She is shocked when he tells her that he has come to Wisconsin to find her. Unwilling to be hurt again, Jessie holds him at an arm's length and tells Jarrett not to expect to begin when they left off.
But as Jarrett opens up to her, Jessie falls in love with him all over again. They share magical moments that remind them of what they had and what they let slip away.
It will take a sudden emergency and a test of trust to finally make them realize that they are destined to walk down the aisle together again.
"Is it really important why I'm here?" Jarrett asked?
"To me it is."
"Okay, then." He reached out and traced the curve of her cheek with his forefinger. "I know I have no right to say this, but I came back for you."
Jessie's eyes widened. She could find nothing to say as the elevator doos closed and took Jarrett away. Pleasure and migivings entwinded themselves around her heart until the edges on each blurred and she could not tell where one emotion ended and the other began,
He said he had cme back for her. It was the last thng on earth she ever expected him to say.
