NFL running back Nate Saylor is the best in the league, a star in his own universe until a brush with the law tarnishes his career. When his agent suggests he sign on with the Moments for Miracles Foundation, a charity organization that grants wishes to kids with life-threatening illnesses, Nate agrees with a half-hearted shrug, never expecting to be contacted. As the offseason begins, he retires to his property on the outskirts of Mill's Landing, secluded from the press and fans that are so quick to judge.
Shayna Grady is a single mom struggling to stay afloat financially while tending to the needs of her son, Zac, who's been struck with childhood leukemia.
