Hollis exceeds at everything she does, she’s a vice president at work, speaks multiple languages and runs marathons, then she falters. Matthew has never been able to please his parents after his brother’s death, and now that he doesn’t want to take over the family business, it really hits the fan. Hollis and Matt are reacquainted in Tomales Bay, where they first met when they were twelve. They grew up together and fell in love, but couldn’t make a go of it. Now, with both their lives in a downward spiral, they will try again.
