A charming village on the New England coast, Cape Light is the kind of place where neighbors help each other and people take the time to appreciate the little things. Sometimes their lives are touched by heartbreak and disappointment, but there's something special about the folks in this tightly knit community-and their unforgettable stories remind us of the extraordinary healing power of love.

Seeing her after all these years has stirred up some conflicting feelings for Emily. While she is grateful to have Sara back in her life, she can't help but regret their years apart.
