Kate Moreton is in Ireland on sabbatical from her teaching position at Dartmouth College when she meets Ozzie Ferriter, a fisherman and a veteran of the American war in Afghanistan. Ozzie has retreated to the one place that might offer him peace from a war he cannot seem to leave behind. Beside the sea, the two fall deeply in love and attempt to live on an island of their own making, away from the pressures of the outside world. When his demons lead Ozzie to become reckless with his life --- and Kate’s --- she flees for America rather than watch the man she loves self-destruct. But soon a letter arrives informing Kate that her heroic husband has been lost at sea, and Kate must decide whether it is an act of love to follow him or an act of mercy to forget.
