During this time, four teachers and one real estate agent face life changing forces that would daunt weaker women. A middle school environment in Virginia becomes the origin of both mystery and romance. There, Jan Ryan, a teacher, very married but dangerously lonely - struggles to overcome the attraction of a magnetic student teacher, Tad Wyatt. Risk occurs when Tad, a man with a secret past, decides to act on his obsessions. Tensions increase as Dana Andrews, also a faculty member, flees to a convent in Florida in a desperate attempt to escape an abusive husband. A childhood friend, now the superior of a community of nuns agrees to provide sanctuary. Dana learns about religious life in the guise of being a potential candidate.
The story alternates between Richmond, Virginia and the oldest city in the United States - St. Augustine, Florida.

The story takes an interesting twist when two blood sisters aware of Dana's destination decide to put their own needs on hold. They arrive in Florida with a detective and pilot in tow - prepared to divert Jim Andrews in his plan to return with his wife.
