She is leery about the reaction of her stern father, who is a judge, to her single-mother status and her precarious health, but TJ proves to be the ideal icebreaker, anxious to examine his grandpa's complicated fishing gear and impressive worm farm. When Sam discovers the full extent of her health problems--she needs a heart transplant--she begins to compare herself to her perfect sister and wallow in regret over her past mistakes, including cheating on her husband with a Mexican horse breaker.
