An unpredictable series of events leads her to visit an Orthodox monastery. She meets an elderly monk there, who—like the ancient Christian elders—has insight into her life, future and heart. He suggests that she look for a husband among her old high school friends. It sounds impossible to Liz; but when she checks, she finds there is one person who does indeed fit the elder's hints: Rob.
Liz hadn’t spoken to Rob since he was fourteen. He had a crush on her then; what will he think of her now? What if she doesn't like him, or he isn't the father-type? And how will she find all this out before moving across country to start a new job?
Thus begins a whirlwind, often hilarious courtship...which ends in a way neither of them expects.
