Mysterious young widow Anna just moved to Regina Beach. The residents of the small town know everyone’s business and they’re keen on discovering Anna’s secrets.
One of these residents is Nick, formerly a sergeant in the Canadian Army. A horrific accident sent him home to recover from his injuries sustained in an IED explosion. He helps Anna feel safe and comfortable in her new environment, just as he has always done for his men in strange, dangerous places. Meanwhile, he focuses on preparing for his future physical endurance test to prove that he is capable of returning to active duty.
Because Anna doesn’t talk about her past and Nick doesn’t talk about his future, she is shocked to discover that his greatest wish is to return to active duty. Afraid of getting hurt, she won’t love a man who may die on the job again. Intellectually, she knows that all life cycles end.
Emotionally, she doesn’t know if she has the strength to support Nick.
