throws a huge wrench in the plans of her granddaughter.
Ally loves Granny Donny, really she does. But it’s time for her to spread her wings. After
Ally’s parents abandoned her, Granny Donny raised her. They’ve stayed in the same apartment
for ten years because Ally’s always hoped that her mother and father would come back for her.
But Ally is finally giving up and moving on with her life. She’s taking a job clear across the
country. Then Granny Donny shows up at Ally’s apartment in a horse drawn carriage. She’s
accompanied by a man she introduces as the Duke of Midfield.

The doctors tell Ally that indulging her grandmother’s fantasy won’t hurt anything and might
even help, so she makes plans to take her grandmother to their summer home. Granny Donny insists
that they take the carriage and that Sam accompany them.
The trip will take several days. Will that be enough time for Sam to win Ally’s heart?
