Willa was tired of her life; going dancing was the only thing she had to look forward to. But then she met Tommy Costello, a navy officer. With no family of her own, Willa longed for unity, love and adventure. Tommy appeared to offer her all of that. After falling pregnant and having a somewhat rushed marriage, Willa finds herself beginning to doubt her feelings and Tommy's intentions while he is away on a round-the-world tour. And Tommy's controlling and interfering mother only fuels Willa's claustrophobia.Willa's only escape is through reading books. And it is at the local library that she meets Richard Fitzwilliam, a struggling author with a similar passion for reading, whose friendship gradually begins to change Willa's life.
