Sometimes ordinary life can be a remarkable journey...
Elizabeth and Jackson Shore married young, raised two daughters, and weathered the storm of youth as they built a family together. From a distance, their life together looks perfect. They are the envy of their friends. But when their girls leave home, Jack and Elizabeth find themselves left in a relationship that has gone stale. In their suddenly empty and quiet house, they each begin to wonder about the roads not taken.
Then Jack is offered the job of his dreams -- across the country from the home that makes Elizabeth feel secure and protected. She makes the difficult decision to put her own needs aside and follow him. It is what she's always done.
Once there, she feels lost, as empty and cold as her husband's new corporate apartment. She misses her beautiful cottage by the sea on the Oregon Coast. Now, when she stands at her bedroom window -- alone, because her husband is working -- all she sees is the building across the street. Instead of the beach music she loves, she hears honking horns and screeching tires.
A family tragedy once again turns Elizabeth's world upside down. In the aftermath, she finds herself questioning her life -- her choices, her marriage, her long-forgotten dreams. In a daring move that will shock her husband, her friends and her children, she chooses to let go of the woman she has become and to reach out for the woman she wants to be.
