Dumped at the altar and left without a home, Rosie Xalbadora takes a job as a governess at the edge of the Australian outback. There she meets Pippa Bristow, a sensitive child who copes with her parent's bitter divorce by escaping into a magical world of fairy queens and unicorns. Pippa's enigmatic single father, Adam Bristow, will do what it takes to keep his daughter safe from his manipulative oil heiress ex-wife. Struggling to shield Pippa from her mother's games, Rosie must face the ghosts of her own painful past while fighting a growing attraction to her handsome, emotionally unavailable employer. But help comes in the form of a quirky, elderly neighbor; a welcoming Outback town, and two horsemen who visit Rosie each night in her dreams. When Rosie and Pippa act impulsively to save a small, white pony from slaughter, their ill-timed compassion puts Adam's custody dispute, Pippa's fantasies, and Rosie's worst fears all up for bid in an epic courtroom showdown.
