Let me see if I understand what you're after: you and she want to
share a calendar at the same time, but be able to carry a local copy
with you, and so be able to edit offline, and then sync back up?

The only sync tool that I'm familiar with that can sync changes made
to *both* copies is Unison. If you go that route, the calendar is
mostly irrelevant as you'll just need to sync local copies of the
calendar file to the network copy. You could try Mozilla's Sunbird or
whatever they're calling it now, or perhaps pAgenda.
