Restoring Tilley's Mill
Tilley's Mill is a town with impending decay of buildings. The youth are leaving for jobs in the city, and parents are bemoaning the fragmentation of the family.
Leck Todd leaves New York after a painful breakup of an engagement. He returns to Tilley's Mill in the mountains of eastern Tennessee to his first love…training horses using Natural Horsemanship.
Isabell Dunnfield, is stranded when her car breaks down on a trip from Asheville, NC back to Chicago. Leck rescues her and brings her into the decaying town. She's stunned by the near ghost town and surprised by the Greek Revival home of a progenitor of the founder of Tilley's Mill. Isabell returns a few weeks later with a plan to revive businesses and help the families.
Leck is slow to get on board. Invited to watch his training methods, he teaches the techniques also apply to humans. All seems smooth until she needs the enterprise of a former boyfriend to bring business to town and the former fiancé of Leck secretly sends a horse for him to train.
Can Isabell succeed in breathing life into a dying town? Can Leck learn to trust again? Can Tilley's Mill be restored?
