When gutsy, divorced mother Emma Moriarty (Sally Field) moves to Eunice, Arizona, eager to make it as a horse trainer on a small desert ranch, the last thing she expects to find is love. Enter the town’s most eligible widower, Murphy Jones (James Garner). The lovable, freewheeling pharmacist befriends Emma and eventually comes a-courting. But just when it seems she may have found the right guy, her ne’er-do-well ex, Bobby Jack (Brian Kerwin), rides back into her life. Soon Emma finds herself at the center of a heated romantic rivalry in this endearing comic love story from director Martin Ritt.
