Engaged to the man of her dreams, working at a job she loves, Claire couldn't be happier. But that's before the Japanese bomb Pearl Harbor. Before she learns her cousins have been killed there. And before Daniel Essex, the man she promised to marry, inexplicably rejects going to war. Refusing to marry such a coward, Claire moves to Washington D. C. , so her work can contribute to the war effort and hopefully her broken heart will mend. But when a family emergency takes her back to California, Claire is once again thrown into Daniel's company. Will Claire come to understand why Daniel made his choices, or will his insistence on going against the tide of public opinion destroy their love forever?
