In the sleepy New England town of Loblolly By The Sea, a letter has arrived that is going to wake things up. It is a love letter-ardent, sensual...and unsigned. As the letter falls into different hands, residents of the small town start to eye one another with renewed interest-wondering who it's for and who it's from. Determined to find the letter's author, Helen MacFarquhar (Kate Capshaw) begins a quest that will open her life to a new chapter involving two decidedly different men: George (Tom Selleck), an old friend from her past, and Johnny (Tom Everett Scott), a young man very much in her present. Unexpectedly, one mysterious love note has the power to unlock some startling secrets, leaving a trail of wonderful surprises as it turns an entire town upside down.
