This story tells the life of Laura Taylor, an artist seeking to repay her hometown for sending her to school. Throughout her life, she finds love, heartache, a daughter she can't seem to be at peace with and a beautiful resort that becomes famous. No matter the setbacks, she always sees herself through, and in the end, she and her daughter find an understanding in each other that was there the whole time.
