Aimie Roarke is a quick-witted worker at the local park and recreations board in the town of Ample Hills. She is known around town for her charity work and her involvement with the local animal shelter and the many bake sales held by the fire department. One thing about Aimie, she cares about her job and her town. And when she finds out that an old oak tree in the historic district is going to be chopped down, a shocked Aimie does everything in her power to stop it.
However, Aimie has a huge task on her hands as she has to fight Tom Parker, the town mayor, and the man he hired to do the job, Kyle Sorenson. Kyle is a handsome and rugged landscaper who tells Aimie that the beautiful tree is causing too much root damage and must be cut down.
What Kyle doesn't know is that Aimie is not one to back down. Beginning her mission to save the tree by creating public awareness and passing out fliers, it's only a matter of time before Aimie shocks everyone by literally chaining herself to the old oak tree.
Instead of cutting through her, Kyle decides to try to reason with Aimie to get her to change her mind, but as they spend more time together, it's obvious that the old tree is growing new roots of love.True-Story Cases
