Description

After her mother dies at a young age, Lauren Westover wants to make her daddy happy, so she spends her childhood smiling and taking great care to be pleasant. In a struggling timber town nearby, a young man dreams of exploring far away galaxies. However, his father declares that is foolishness, so Zach Zacata tucks away his dream and searches for a way to make a lot of money, thinking that will bring happiness. That search brings him to Portland, Oregon, where he meets Lauren and falls in love. However, he believes Lauren should have the best, so he sets off once more to make his fortune. When he leaves, Lauren is heartbroken, and all the pain she has kept locked behind a smile comes tumbling out. Defiant and hurting, she turns to another man she thinks can make her happy.Zach hides his own shattered heart behind a charming grin that attracts many ladies while he builds a fortune as the leader of a rock band. However, money is a very lonely companion without Lauren, the only woman he has truly loved. Although Lauren isn't happy with her life, she gives birth to a child she adores. When her husband dies, Lauren learns he has mortgaged all their possessions to finance the career of the man who killed him. Penniless, Lauren struggles to build a life for herself and her teenaged son that is not dependent on a man wanting her beauty. Once again, Zach's hope that Lauren will marry him seems remote. Her rejection feeds Zach's fear that he is growing old and useless, so he gambles his fortune on a comeback for his rock band.However, the recording executive who holds Zach's contract wants Lauren and is jealous of Zach. Though he pretends to be a friend, he secretly plots to ruin Zach so that Lauren will turn to him. When Zach has a heart attack, Lauren realizes she still loves him. To save his fortune, she confronts her own fears about the music business she blames for her husband's death, and uses her public relations skills to turn Zach's health crisis into promotion for the band's comeback.The recording exec is furious that his scheme isn't working and hires an ex-convict to get rid of Zach and frighten Lauren. While the police track down the ex-convict, Zach and Lauren disguise themselves as an older couple and hide out in a retirement facility where they learn that graying hair doesn't mean being unworthy or helpless. On stage, the band's comeback is successful enough to secure Zach's assets. Now Zach can explore the galaxies--at least through a telescope--with children who have the same dream, and sit under the stars with his wife, Lauren.Lauren fulfills her own dream by earning a college degree and using her public relations skills to build a name for Zach's program with children, called Stars in Your Eyes.show more
