A Portuguese-American romance: Newspaper reporter Chelsea Faust spends most of her spare time in the darkroom and runs marathons for fun. She's working for a small weekly newspaper now, but she has big ambitions. At 28, she lives alone and lets no one tell her what to do, much to the chargrin of her Portuguese-American mother and her German-American father.
Enter Simao Freitas, an immigrant from the Azores Islands who brings with him old-country views about how men should be in charge and women should obey their husbands.
When they meet at a Portuguese festival, the attraction is instant, but any chance of a future together appears to be doomed as Simao battles memories of a painful loss while Chelsea pursues a news story headlong into a situation that could cost her life.
