SOMETIMES YOU CAN LOSE SIGHT OF WHAT'S REALLY IMPORTANT
Dicey Tillerman has big dreams. She's started a boatbuilding business, and she's determined to prove she can succeed on her own. That's why at first she resists the offer of help from Cisco, the mysterious stranger who turns up one day at her shop.
But running a business doesn't leave much time for the people Dicey treasure — her grandmother, her younger siblings, and her boyfriend, Jeff. And then the trust Dicey puts in Cisco turns out to be misplaces. Suddenly it seems as if Dicey could lose everything — has she discovers too late what really matters to her?
