The movie stars Julie Gonzalo as Angela Young/Elizabeth and Benjamin Ayres as Dr. Jeff Callan.
The synopsis for the movie reads:
When a best-selling author decides to escape the media frenzy, her plan goes awry when a she’s caught in a thunderstorm and crashes her car. Found wandering with no memory and no ID, the town doctor (and a single dad) offers up his guest house until her memory returns. But as she blends seamlessly into their family life, she must decide if the life she’s been living is the life she wants.
Another synopsis reads:
Bestselling author Angela Young needs to get away from the media circus surrounding her book, but her boyfriend/manager Brad is too busy making deals to listen. Determined to take a break, Angela pulls a disappearing act and drives off to see the fall foliage. But her little getaway goes awry when a storm hits, sending her down an embankment into a tree, where she hits her head and blacks out. The next day, Angela (finds) herself being tended to by the town’s handsome doctor, Jeff Callan, but she has temporary amnesia. Jeff, a single dad, offers his guesthouse to Angela and she soon bonds not only with his kids but also with Jeff and the idyllic Vermont town of Hopedale. By the time Brad and her sister finally locate Angela, she is already wondering if getting lost has helped her to find where she actually wants to be.
