When cleaning out her recently deceased great-grandmother's attic, Easton Long discovers a box of telegrams exchanged between her grandmother and a man whose name she has never heard. Reeling after the loss of her beloved family member, a nasty break-up, and the loss of her job, Easton decides to dive deeper into the life of the mysterious man, William.
When Easton discovers William was Nannie's childhood friend who died during the attack on Pearl Harbor, she cannot resist the urge to see the wreckage for herself. She is drawn to William and his story, one she isn't sure has been thoroughly told, and soon finds herself on a cross-country road trip with her own childhood friend, Drew Prescott.
While the two set out to reconnect and get over their past issues, they discover much more than they had anticipated. With each step, the mystery deepens... and love grows.
