Any hopes of creative fulfillment are crushed when twenty-six year-old Thomas O'Hollaren is forced to abandon his starving-artist's lifestyle and return home to Seattle to run the family business. Stuck in limbo and unavoidable guilt regarding his past relationship with his father, Thomas finds an unexpected friendship that begins to challenge his pessimism towards people, love, and faith. Optimistically waiting for her one true love is proving to be challenging and incredibly frustrating for Maura McCormick. She begins to doubt if she has the spiritual wherewithal to meet the standards of the devout dating pool of Blessed Sacrament Church. As she struggles to determine what level of holiness is required for the committed, romantic love she craves, it is Maura's inherent desire to care for those in need that may end up leading her away from what, and who, she always thought would make her happy.
