Madison Witherspoon Mitchell grew up dirt poor and her family moved constantly, but she always managed to have a few plant seeds in her pocket. She meets Nathaniel Mitchell in college and they fall in love. After graduation, they buy an organic farm near Lancaster. When her husband is crushed under a tree, Madison calls her Witherspoon cousins who rush to the hospital. The three of them call upon all their healing powers, laying hands on Mitch, but his injuries are too severe, and not even the powers of all three can save him.
It’s been two years but the pain is still there as Madison tries to run the farm and care for her rambunctious six-year-old twin boys. A local trucking company, whose previous offer to buy Mitch had turned down, now comes to Madison with another offer to buy the farm. After she turns them down, her barn door is ripped loose, some tools are stolen and the greenhouse is slashed. Now she’s not sure how much more she can stand and is beginning to think she might have to sell.
When carpenter Allen Zook arrives at the farmhouse to fix the broken barn door, he finds himself attracted to Madison despite his own trust issues. For the first time since his wife died, he might actually be interested in another woman.
When he finally invites Madison out for dinner before he leaves town for a furniture show, an older man collapses in the restaurant and he watches as she places her hand on his heart and then sees her overcome with pain. When he questions her, she says she doesn’t want to talk about it. While he is out of town, his daughter falls off the monkey bars at school and they call Madison. Rebekah later tells her dad that Mrs. Mitchell “prayed for her.” Allen suspects that there is more to Madison than she has shared with him.
They finally talk about the things that are bothering them. She is furious to learn that he discussed Mitch’s accident with the neighbors and didn’t tell her. He’s wondering why she won’t tell him the truth about what she did with the old man and again with his daughter. It seems that they both have “trust” issues. Each is too stubborn and too scared to risk their hearts getting broken again. They angrily split up.
A few days later, all that doesn’t seem to matter when Allen sees an ambulance pull into Madison’s lane. He follows to the red tractor on its side and Madison laying in the field row, her legs pinned, unconscious and bleeding. She awakens in the hospital to find Allen sitting by the hospital bed holding her hand. As he says goodbye, she whispers, “I’m sorry” and he says, “Me, too.”
After she has recovered, Allen invites her to go to Chicago to a furniture show with him to give them some time alone. It goes better than either of them could have expected. But they return home to find that Mitch’s death has been confirmed as murder. For Madison, it’s like her husband has just died all over again. All the pain she thought she had moved past, came flooding back, and she pushes Allen away.
Madison goes away for a few days to clear her head and comes back ready to work at getting justice for Mitch and ready to see if she and Allen have a future together. With some help from Allen’s brother-in-law, who is a police officer, they get information to bring the murderer to justice and uncover a dirty cop in the process.
With all the excitement, Madison has forgotten that she’s hosting a family reunion and birthday party for the boys the following weekend. She enlists the help of Mitch and his family to pull it all together. There are a few surprises at the reunion that no one saw coming and the weekend is a smashing success.
With the mystery solved and the reunion behind them, now it’s up to Madison to ask Allen an important question before giving him an answer to his proposal. Can Allen accept that Madison is a Witherspoon Healer? If he can’t then they have no future. If he can, then the answer is a resounding “yes!”
