Maggie Lewis is a retired librarian who's looking forward to spending a quiet summer on Vashon Island where she lives. But a wind storm hits the island, and her new neighbour, Walter Hathaway, an award-winning children's author, gets injured. Suddenly, Maggie is involved in Walter's life and we learn they had a history together twenty years ago. But Walter is a different man than when she first met him. He is now a grumpy, recovering alcoholic, a loner, and struggling to get published again. What's more, Maggie also has to deal with her younger needy sister with whom she shares a sad childhood.
