Erinís new business as a wedding planner is running at full speed and her empty nest years are full of promise when she receives a call that puts everything on hold: her estranged father has had a stroke. The twinkle is fading from Jack OíRileyís Irish eyes and his calloused second wife makes it clear this is not what she signed up for.
With her own sonís wedding plans in full swing, Erin does not expect to make a return visit to see her father. Suddenly Erinís visit to her fatherís cottage by the sea is extended indefinitely. At first the task before her is as daunting as the wild Oregon coast that has become her unwanted second home. Yet in the many hours she spends beside her ailing father, Erin finds a treasure hidden in the darkness. She reaches out and, at long last, receives the gift of healing.
