Set near the warm and sunny beaches of Australia, Kate finds herself returning to her childhood home of Waratah Inn. The unhappy reason, her grandmother's death, takes her away from a busy chef's life and her fiancé.
Not so picture perfect, Kate believes her life is what she wants. Sometimes, being too busy takes the spotlight off the imperfections.
Her two estranged sisters travel to the Inn for the funeral. Initially, they feel like strangers and have to break through the years of separation to retrieve the bond they once had.
A silent mystery surrounding Grandma Nan is found in her journal as the sisters attempt to recycle the rundown Inn before the decision of to sell or not to sell.
Nan's story is a loss and a finding of love, which plucks at Kate's heart. Maybe she needs to lose and find love again, too. Riding the stable horse gives her time to ponder the vacancies in her life and find the man, Alex, who tends the horses.
Widowed several years ago, Alex teaches math and tends horses as a hobby. Meeting Kate renews his spirit. It may be slow and subtle, but love can happen again.
Several months of decision making about the Inn, her life, and where her love leads her, brings Kate to an ultimatum. To settle, or to thrive... When one life ends, another begins!
