Charles Vincent is trapped in a loveless marriage, and his job is simply a paycheck. One night on the Normandy coast he falls asleep at the wheel and veers off the road and down the cliff. Miraculously surviving, he walks to a cabin where he meets Aude Saint-Martin. As she nurses him back to health, Charles discovers the passion his life has been missing -- and realizes he could walk away from his old life. But Aude has secrets of her own. As their pasts catch up to them, they will threaten everything they have fought to build.
