Unexpected encounters and a new job crack open her social isolation. The arrival of Joe Muir, a widower with two adopted Ugandan children, awaken Bennett’s long-ignored desires. Inspired to win Joe’s love she is determined to fly to Uganda in search of the children’s missing sister but must find the courage she has always lacked.
In striving to become the person she longs to be, Bennett discovers it is never too late to find friendship, love, and adventure.
