The San Francisco Bay area dawns a typical day-sunshine, cool breezes, then rain-the afternoon Kate Langstons entire world is set off-kilter. Successful in their careers and happily ensconced in the empty-nest stage of life, Kate and Mikes twenty-six year marriage has settled into a comfortable, if somewhat predictable, routine.
A package sent through the mail shatters the world they have created together, and Kate walks out the door certain their marriage is over and wonders if her faith in God will ever be the same. Mike, devastated by what has happened to their relationship, determines to win back his wife, whatever the cost, even though his company appears on the brink of a criminal investigation. A voyage in the Pacific seems to be the lifeline he was seeking, but will Kate agree to sail with a husband she no longer trusts?
