Meg, a worker at a resort on Magnetic Island, Australia, finds an old antique bottle on the shore one night. Inside is a letter from a soldier to his beloved wife written sixty years ago, when he realized he probably wouldn't be coming home alive. Before long, the story spreads far and wide, reaching his grandson Sam in Seattle. He comes to Magnetic Island to take the letter, and in an instant, he steals Meg's heart with his sky-blue eyes and movie-star looks. But she's nothing but a fling to him...or so she thinks, until one night of passion and romance!
