While studying at the School of the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, her life suddenly changes forever upon meeting Peter Whyte, a young painter from the mountains of Banff, Alberta.  Recognizing a soulmate in each other, Catharine and Peter initially hide their courtship from the world before shocking everyone with their plans to wed and settle in the wilds of the Canadian Rocky Mountains.  Amid the splendor of nature, the couple experiences life’s joys and challenges, discovering that “home” can sometimes be found in another person.
