From the fields of Angus to the shores of Mexico, a family struggles to find their way home.
To young Victoria Cameron, Angus, Scotland is the most beautiful place on earth, and she wishes nothing more than to stay on her little farm forever. But the death of her beloved grandfather leaves her and her mother without a farm and struggling to make ends meet.
Never one to give up, Victoria soon finds work in a Dundee mill, while her mother supports them by taking in lodgers. Neither ever expected one of those lodgers would be John Cameron, the father that walked out on them so many years ago.
Victoria is torn about how to receive this stranger and torn about the other man in her life - a young boy she thinks she could love if only he comes back from the war.
