1947. Fires are racing along the coast of Maine after a summer-long drought, ravaging thousands of acres. Five months pregnant, Grace Holland is left alone to protect her two toddlers when her husband Gene joins the volunteers fighting the fire. Along with her best friend, Rosie, and Rosie's two young children, the women watch in horror as their houses go up in flames. When dawn comes, they have miraculously survived, but their lives are forever changed. In the midst of devastating loss, Grace discovers glorious new freedoms - joys and triumphs she could never have expected her narrow life with Gene could contain - and her spirit soars. And then the unthinkable happens, and Grace's bravery is tested as never before.
