Sisterhood, safety, and secrets - it all happens at the lighthouse on Five Island Cove.
Five best friends. Five islands in the cove. In this small town East Coast island community, people only think they know everyone else's business. But the secrets are as thick as the fog on a winter night, and even the lighthouse might not be able to shine through them all...
When Joel Shields dies, Robin's only goal is to get her four best friends back to Five Island Cove to celebrate the life of Kristen's husband. One by one, the women are embroiled in the way Joel's life reached out and intertwined with each of theirs, some in sweet ways, and some in ways so horrific, Robin realizes she didn't at all know the man she'd seen face-to-face almost every day of her life.
They gather to the lighthouse, which has always been a safe haven, a place of sanctuary, and a beacon of hope for a brighter future for each of them, to talk as they always have.
Kristen leads the group as she always has, though she's drowning in grief and family drama. Eloise brings news of a second chance at love, and Alice confesses how unhappy she is despite her riches. AJ can't get her boyfriend to commit, and Kelli is completely overwhelmed with guilt for her refusal to forgive her own father.
As Robin tries to hold them all together, she too breaks down and admits that her husband wants to leave Five Island Cove for better fishing grounds in Alaska. As they work together to find the truth and what it means to each of them personally, they learn to let go of what doesn't matter and cling to what does: faith, family, and friendship.
