Romance | Contemporary
Grace Bennett has it all -- three wonderful children, a
devoted husband and a life of adventure and travel. But
beneath the calm demeanor of an efficient Navy wife, Grace
stands at the crossroads -- of her life and her marriage.
When she looks in the mirror, she doesn't recognize the
person staring back. She's tired, out of shape and feeling
invisible. Somewhere between her husband's demanding
career, raising a family, the constant uprooting and the
Navy's routine, Grace has lost her sense of self. Something
needs to change. She needs to change.
Steve Bennett simply can't understand the unraveling of his
wife's heart. He thought he was proving his love to her
with each promotion. He believed he could still be a good
husband and father while juggling an officer's myriad
duties. But he now realizes they were seeing their marriage
through different eyes. And when a nearly forgotten secret
resurfaces, Grace's discontent comes into sharp focus. Now
Steve must try to make their marriage right again before
his next deployment. For himself. For his family. For the
twenty years of shared history that have always anchored
him to home.
Then duty calls.
Separated by an ocean of regrets and longing, Grace and
Steve take a hard took at their faltering marriage, the
love that brought them together and the family they
cherish. They confront the choices they've made, the
sacrifices they've rationalized and the dreams they've set
But just as they come to grips with their marriage, the
unthinkable happens -- a disaster aboard Steve's aircraft
carrier shatters Grace's world. As she gathers her children
around her and waits for news, she faces a Navy wife's
worst nightmare -- the cold truth that life's biggest
chances can slip away while you're looking for guarantees.
