On a windswept island off Cape Cod, Delilah moves into a cottage by the shore.

The neighbors watch the newcomer and wonder about her. They don't like it when she plants a wild and colorful garden in the front yard - very unusual, they whisper. The local gossip intensifies with every visit from Alan, the married man paying for Delilah's keep.

Delilah hasn't always been Delilah. Once, she was Dolores, a young Latina girl growing up with her Abuela, both of them hiding a terrible secret. After years of living precariously, all she wants now is a place of her own to make beautiful. But life is about to get complicated again. Her new cottage shares a driveway with the reclusive Anton, who has a secret of his own. When the two meet, sparks fly - but will the past catch up with them?
