Vinny Tumulty is a quiet, sensible man. When he goes to stay at a seaside town, his task is to comfort a bereaved friend.
Vinny is prepared for a solemn few days of tears and consolation.
But on the evening of his arrival, he looks out of the window at the sunset and catches sight of a mysterious, romantic figure: a beautiful woman walking by the seashore.
Before the week is over Vinny has fallen in love, completely and utterly, for the first time in his middle-aged life.
Emily, though, is a sleeping beauty, her secluded life hiding bitter secrets from the past.
