Hot breath on Grace's face Claire is screaming, and Grace is on her feet As she lifts her daughter, a wall of fire fills the window Perhaps a quarter of a mile back, if even that Where's Gene? Didn't he come home? 1947 Fires are racing along the coast of Maine after a summer-long drought, ravaging thousands of acres, causing unprecedented confusion and fear Five months pregnant, Grace Holland is left alone to protect her two toddlers when her difficult and unpredictable husband Gene joins the volunteers fighting to bring the fire under control Along with her best friend, Rosie, and Rosie's two young children, the women watch in horror as their houses go up in flames, then walk into the ocean as a last resort They spend the night frantically trying to save their children When dawn comes, they have miraculously survived, but their lives are forever changed: homeless, penniless, and left to face an uncertain future As Grace awaits news of her husband's fate, she is thrust into a new world in which she must make a life on her own, beginning with absolutely nothing; she must find work, a home, a way to provide for her children In the midst of devastating loss, Grace discovers glorious new freedoms - joys and triumphs she could never have expected her narrow life with Gene could contain - and her spirit soars And then the unthinkable happens, and Grace's bravery is tested as never before
