High school senior Stephanie Turner is about to be the state swimming champion until a last minute bout with the flu ruins her chances. Despondent after her crushing loss, her world is instantly brightened by a pair of sparkling brown eyes belonging to one Sara Austin. Their bond forms in an instant, but their love must remain a secret in their conservative Midwestern community.
Sara’s self-sabotage, fueled by her jealous friend Jenny, causes them to go their separate ways. As the two women struggle to survive in their own worlds, entering into loveless marriages to fit in and denying their own truth and personal desires, the timelessness of their love endures. Soon, Stephanie will find that the love she shares with Sara reaches across the centuries, and destiny will prevail over human prejudice.
