In this modern-day Cinderella story with a charming twist, a young widow with two rambunctious sons falls for a gorgeous movie star. But can she handle life in the limelight?

She’s barely pieced herself back together and takes refuge in her routine, running her kids around town and running the trails near their Idaho home.

She doesn’t fit into his Hollywood world. She doesn’t own a pair of Louboutins, and she couldn’t walk five steps in them if she did. A...
