While walking in Central Park, Connor is on the phone with Jake. While getting off the phone with him, he then bumps into a redhead. Her coffee spills all over his suit. After he grabs her hand to introduce himself, Connor feels an immediate spark with Kate. When he asks for her phone number, Connor never imagines the role that fate has just played in determining his future.
After Jake convinces him to call Kate, Connor is smitten after just one date. Estranged from his parents for six years, Connor is still reeling from feelings of abandonment and realizes Kate is just the girl he wants to walk beside him on a journey of healing. Kate, who has been heartbroken before, hopes that Connor is not like all the others. As they fall in love and imagine their happily-ever-after, neither has any idea that Connor will soon awaken from the strangest dream and realize the love of his life is just that—a dream. Now only time will tell how far Connor will be willing to go to find her and how much he is willing to risk to learn things he doesn’t want to know.
The Fountain is a beautiful tale of passion, love at first sight, and a young couple’s determination to overcome seemingly insurmountable obstacles in order to be together forever.
