In this novel, Rebecca begins the quest to discover herself and the woman she will become. She exchanges the rules of every day living for the commands of military life. Landing on foreign soil, she immediately connects with Alex, her overseas host. Although her internal red light warns her not to get involved with the handsome man, her loneliness overtakes her and she joins him on a spontaneous trip. By the time she comes to the reality of her misjudgment, the result of her `date rape' is pregnancy. When she gathers the courage to tell Alex her news, she finds out that he has gone back to the United States for his wife's emergency delivery of their baby. Rebecca must now decide if she will abort the fetus or become and unwed mother with hopes that her first love, Stewart, will accept her and her child.
