Getting away from her abusive, soon-to-be-ex-husband, Susi Jury accepts the
invitation of her lifelong best friend, Tracy, to attend the Navy Boot Camp
graduation of her younger brother at Naval Station Great Lakes near Chicago.
At a celebration for the graduates at a local bar, she accidentally spills
red wine on a young, handsome sailor—Lance Wells. Love at first sight?

The next morning, as they lay in bed confessing their love for one another,
she realizes that her life has just changed forever—and so far, for
the better. Lance returns to the base and Susi to her home in Arizona. Soon
comes the first hurdle in their relationship: Susi is pregnant.

What follows is a romance for the ages that spans more than twenty years.
From a long distance courtship, followed by the birth of a daughter, then
through marriage, overseas deployment, loss, loneliness, and eventually
coming to terms with the effect that PTSD can have on a relationship.

As the years pass, Susi witnesses how Lance’s Navy experience as a
Fleet Marine Force Corpsman changes him. A short deployment during Desert
Storm, a horrific plane crash on Guam, the horrors of 9/11, and the Battle
of Fallujah—all seem to drain the spirit out of a once vibrant and
devoted husband, leading to an act of desperation that finds Susi in a
situation she could never have imagined.
