Hope is that thing that sees through walls, breaks through barriers, and propels dreams into reality.
Despite numerous struggles and tragedies, the Middleton and Kelly families live humble and faith-filled lives in the Atlantic Ocean resort town of Chincoteague Island, Virginia. The tight-knit families represent everything Nick Black hopes to have—loving parents, welcoming homes, and stable lives, but a broken heart confirms his belief that he is unworthy of everlasting happiness.
Taylor Murray wants nothing more than to be one of the world-famous Chincoteague Island Saltwater Cowboys, but a long-standing tradition stands in her way and pits her against her friends and neighbors. Brought together by a sudden tragedy, Nick and Taylor must navigate the waters of death, darkness, and despair in order to discover that miracles abound, promises are fleeting, and hope is a necessity for the families on Chincoteague Island.
