Jeremy Fulton is one of the hottest, most recognizable actors in the UK, but after a bitter divorce and the death of his father leave him threadbare, he’s had enough. So, he gives himself the generic name, Tim Jones, charters a private jet across the pond, and disappears into the wilderness of Pocahontas County, West Virginia. Unfortunately for Jeremy, hiding out isn’t as easy as he’d hoped. A bout of food poisoning leaves him sick and weak. Then, a hundred-year flood hits rips apart the picturesque valley. When he spots a circle of cabins, he thinks his luck has finally changed. But on his way to the camp he slips and is tossed down a rocky slope.
After a tumultuous year teaching at a wealthy Northern Virginia high school, Kate is spent. The only thing that has kept her going is the upcoming escape to Pocahontas County, WV with her best friend, Penny. But when a hundred-year flood hits, she finds herself evacuated to the Slate Wilderness Resort with forty elderly and scared residents. Things get worse when she sees a hiker slip and crash down the side of the mountain. The injured man is carried to her cabin, and when he awakes, he tells everybody his name is Tim, but Kate knows better. He is Jeremy Fulton, her celebrity crush. Before Kate can confess she knows his true identity, he explains to her why he came to the woods—that his everyday life was too much to handle. Kate realizes she must hide what she knows. The two quickly grow inseparable, and it’s not long before Kate begins to forget where Tim starts and Jeremy ends.

As the women spend the afternoon chatting on a park bench, Clara shares stories about her life, from serving as a triage nurse in Vietnam to becoming a great-grandmother. As Ally helps Clara complete a deeply personal mission, she realizes that the greatest lessons are seldom taught in a lecture hall.
