Set in the picturesque coastal town of Cape Elizabeth, Maine, ‘The Summer We Collide,’ explores two love stories, one lost in time and the other flourishing in the present.
McKenzie (Mack) Harper rents a charming summer cottage in the hopes of having a relaxing vacation. While there, she comes across a 1947 diary, which draws her into a world of love and heartbreak.
Rose Degan, a nineteen-year-old who falls in love with a man her parents disapprove of, writes each diary entry. She loves Cape Elizabeth firefighter Jacob Evans whom she meets on the cliffs as she watches the rescue of a collier ship's crew after a fierce storm.
Dean Evans, Jacob’s grandson, intercepts Mack's message at Jacob Evans' last known address. His curiosity piqued, Dean decides that the mystery woman and her diary are a good excuse to escape his mother's matchmaking shenanigans—her sole focus being a grandchild.
All these characters come together in a story of love and friendship.
