Are we willing to sacrifice for the things we love?
A heart-warming story about Isabel Cooper, a widow who has been working as an executive secretary for a major corporation since her husband passed away and who now lives with her elderly mother. Life for Isabel during this time has been routine until one day her boss and company CEO Lyman Jones announces that the company's board of directors voted to replace him with a younger man, Wynn Thomas. Lyman then accepts another position with another firm and offers Isabel a position as his secretary at the new firm. But Wynn also wants to keep Isabel and even offers her a promotion and a raise. This represents Isabel's first choice. Does she remain loyal to Lyman or does she accept Wynn's more lucrative offer? At first, Isabel decides to stay with Lyman but the latter, upon hearing Wynn's offer to Isabel, encourages her to remain with the same firm. Later on, Wynn even promotes her to VP of purchasing. When Lyman's wife is tragically killed in a plane crash, he and Isabel become romantically involved and later, he asks her to marry him. He makes but one condition; that she quit her job. This represents her second choice; does she remarry after 15 lonely years or does she keep a position that she has worked very hard to attain? Adding to the mix is her mother who is actively encouraging her to accept Lyman's proposal. What price does the road less traveled have? That's the question that Isabel is now faced with.
