To fulfill her grandmother's dying wish, her granddaughter, a high-powered Manhattan attorney, sets out to find the hometown boy her grandmother once loved, and give him her grandmother's last letter. What should be a one-day trip to Beacon is quickly complicated when she almost drowns in the chilly bay and is saved by a local carpenter. The rescue turns the granddaughter into something of a local celebrity, which may or may not help her unravel the past her grandmother labored to keep hidden. As she learns about her grandmother and herself, it becomes clear that a 24-hour visit to Beacon may never be enough.
