This is a story of a woman who had always defined herself as a wife and mother. When her daughter went off to college, she started to look at her life and ask herself if she was truly happy. She didn't come face to face with it until her mother, whom she hadn't seen in several years, had an accident. She was asked to come back to the coastal South Carolina home of her youth to help her mother, and forced to face the demons that haunted her since her father's death some 30 years before.

While taking care of her mother, she develops a relationship with a monk in the local monastery. She is forced to come to terms with her past, her present, and how she wants to spend her future.

Filled with an abundance of rich characters, this is a well-written story that pulls you in and makes you care.
