Synopsis

A beautiful young man with the mind of a child — a gentle outcast in a cruel, unbending world — he illuminates the darkness of Mary's days with his boyish innocence. And he will shatter the lonely, middle-aged spinster's respectable, ordered life with a forbidden promise of a very special love.

Mary and Tim could not have been more different. Their only chance of happiness lay in creating a world of their own.
