Solicitor Alec Callender is a dreamer. He longs for cases in the vein of his hero, fictional attorney Perry Mason, but in small-town England rarely gets work more exciting than a mucky divorce.
However, a case of precisely that nature provides the middle-aged widower with excitement in the form of Zoe Angell. At 26, she is less than half of his age - barely older than his son in fact - but shared interests and a similar sense of humour with the young PE teacher sees romance blossom between the unlikely pair. Their families offer differing and wavering levels of support, but love will always find a way - won't it?
