Kathryn Lyon has an ideal life. A pilot's wife, she's happy teaching in her New England town's - and her hometown's - high school. Her marriage is a loving one and her precocious 15-year-old daughter is a constant delight. But when a late-night knock at the door awakens Kathryn to the terrible news that her husband died in a plane crash, her world erupts.
