Here’s the synopsis for the movie from Hallmark: “When Lucy’s childhood sweetheart plans to tear down the Gilded Age estate and replace it with a golf course, Lucy fights to preserve the historic mansion at all costs. As Lucy and Duncan set out to find a compromise, they learn that embracing the past may be the key to protecting the future.”
Another synopsis reads: “Lucy (Schull) is in line for a promotion as Director of London’s prestigious Museum of World History when she learns that her beloved great aunt has died back in Rhode Island. When she returns to her great aunt’s stately and beautiful estate, Wycliff House, Lucy learns to her astonishment that her great aunt left half the estate to her, and half to Duncan (Porte), whose parents were the estate’s caretakers for decades. Between their vastly conflicting plans for the inherited estate from America’s Gilded Age, a budding romance that abruptly ended ten years prior … and the issues that once again bubble to the surface between history-loving dreamer Lucy and oh-so-practical Duncan, the future of Wycliff House seems as uncertain as their relationship.”
