Hoping to find a way to move on from the sadness that threatens to overwhelm her life, young widow, Betsy Abbot, moves to Alderney to manage a small bistro.
There she meets and falls in love with the charismatic and ruggedly handsome Guernsey yachtsman, Allain Laubert. The Jonquil is Allain’s yacht, which he sails in the demanding ‘St Anne Challenge’, a biennial yacht race around the island of Alderney.
Allain gives Betsy new hope. Her life once again is brightened by love. But for a second time Betsy’s life is devastated by sudden tragedy, followed by complications and misunderstandings. And Allain’s former girlfriend, Francesca, is determined to keep them apart.
