In 1966, a tragic accident apparently robs Maria of Daniel, the dashing RAF pilot that she loves unreservedly, and perhaps it's not surprising that she rushes headlong into marriage with Howard. But almost instantly she discovers he has a cruel streak, and because of her Christian faith, it seems she is condemned to a lifetime of unhappiness. That is, until five years later when her best friend Stephanie thinks she might have seen the supposedly dead Daniel. Is she right and if she is, what will it mean for Maria, who believes in the sanctity of marriage? God is there to help her on her journey, but how many more years must pass before she finally finds complete happiness, and who will it be with?
