She served as a Navy Nurse on the island paradise of Guam, her fiance was a brilliant surgeon who came from old money, and most of all, she’d created a life across the globe from the northwest island farm she’d escaped at sixteen.Now, on the death of her beloved father and the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor and the capture of Guam, she’s been shipped back to rainy Nootka Island. There, Maggie faces a past best forgotten, a bitter, bed-ridden mother and the foresaken quince orchard her father had nurtured so lovingly.Ken Johnson, the island’s ferry captain, never loved anyone but Maggie. For eight long years he’s struggled to forgive himself for the incident the night before she ran away. But those eight years did nothing to shield his heart against Maggie as a woman grown.Isolated by her past and the demands of the present, Maggie’s heart is shutting down almost as fast as her mother’s body. Then an anonymous friend throws her a lifeline—a ham radio. It allows her to touch the outside world. Maggie discovers her father’s soul in the quince trees he loved, and friends in surprising places.But can she learn to hear her heart before it’s frozen over forever by the cold winter storms?
