Mikael Mulcahy, after losing his family, decides to start life anew in the Bahamas. There he meets an extraordinary woman, Kate, who boldly moves in with him declaring to be his half-sister. Mikael learns she is being stalked by an ex-boyfriend because of her involvement in convicting him of fraud. What confuses Mikael however are the mixed signals he gets from Kate involving their relationship.

Along with Kate comes an array of adventures involving her twin, Sara; Mikael's old friend; a wealthy yacht owner; an attractive barmaid; and a massive islander named Peewee. And a young island girl who stops by the cottage each morning dropping off poems to get guidance from Mikael.

Hopelessly entangled in webs of relationships, Mikael seeks to support his new friends however he can, including involvement in eco-terrorism in an attempt to preserve the pristine life on the little isle.
