But hard-working, determined Maggie breaks out of this harsh lifestyle by excelling in school, earning a college scholarship, and escaping from her provincial familybut never from her grandmothers Christ-based admonitions.
Meeting chemistry professor, Carson Bales, in unlikely circumstances sets Maggies course toward romance, a hastily planned marriage, and a wedding night surprise. After thirty happy years of marriage, their lives are interrupted by Carsons diagnosis of Alzheimers disease. Maggie walks every step of dementias abyss with him and makes another fateful connectionwith Dr. Bill Holton, whose wife suffers the same disease.
Bill and Maggie form a friendship around their common thread. At least, Maggie believes it is just friendshipuntil a stormy night and a broken water heater bring them together on the Outer Banks. Maggies stalwart morality, driven by Grannys warnings, is in jeopardy when one misspoken word causes Bill to challenge her fidelity to a husband who no longer knows her name. Will Maggie choose faithfulness to her husband and to Jesus or a second chance at love? And will forgiveness require yet another choice?
