The plot of the novel is set in The United States and revolves around the happening in the lives of the main characters, Joe Connor and Caroline Renwick. In the opening sequence of the plot of the novel, author Luanne has described a family of three sisters experiencing crisis, who come to know about their past lives and try to find strength in each other’s courage to move on in life.

Joe Connor was only six years old when his father had died at the Firefly Hill and the 5 year old Caroline Renwick had become his friend and his pen pal. But when he grew up and came to know about how his father had died, he had gone away into darkness. Now, after being silent for many years, he has finally arrived again. Caroline seems to be in two minds on arrivals as she still feels the connection with him and at the same time, wonders whether Joe holds the key to the healing of her family crisis – or for its destruction.

The 12 year old Quinn seems to a tough challenge for Dana. Being an expert sailor, she believes that her parents had not died in an accident and this also forces Dana to believe that something wrong might have happened to them on that clear night. Soon, an old friend of Dana named Sam Trevor reappears in her life, who seems to have been in love with her ever since their childhood days. But, Dana always sees him as only a young student whom she had taught sailing and cannot think of opening her heart to his love. However, she joins him in discovering the mysteries centering around the Hubbard’s Point that have caused many deaths over the years.
