Fall 1918. The Great War is raging in Europe.
American soldier, Jack Collins, is burned when he drags a dying friend into a mustard gas-filled trench. He spends the next agonizing weeks in one army hospital after another. As day after painful day passes, he loses hope that he’ll ever lead a normal life.
In New England, Meg longs to do her part to help in the war effort, but caring for her elderly grandmother takes up all her time. Then her aunt and uncle make arrangements for her to volunteer in a nearby hospital where she meets Jack. Jack doesn’t think he will ever walk again – but he isn’t counting on Meg’s determination to help him, or on falling in love with this remarkable woman.
The day finally comes when Jack can go home. Meg fears he’ll leave her forever. Will Jack follow through on all he has been promising Meg?
