McKenzie (Mack) Harper rents a charming summer cottage in the hopes of having a relaxing vacation. While there, she comes across a 1947 diary, which draws her into a world of love and heartbreak.
Rose Degan, a nineteen-year-old who falls in love with a man her parents disapprove of, writes each diary entry. She loves Cape Elizabeth firefighter Jacob Evans whom she meets on the cliffs as she watches the rescue of a collier ship's crew after a fierce storm.
Dean Evans, Jacob’s grandson, intercepts Mack's message at Jacob Evans' last known address. His curiosity piqued, Dean decides that the mystery woman and her diary are a good excuse to escape his mother's matchmaking shenanigans—her sole focus being a grandchild.
All these characters come together in a story of love and friendship.
