For First Sergeant Gale Sorren, the military has become his life. He lives and breathes military to the point that the war became his wife and Melanie became the mistress.
Melanie's first love and high school sweetheart was Gale. Upon being married right out of graduation, Melanie centered her life around Gale's even when he was immediately drafted and is to be shipped out of the country. What they never planned on is the little girl that they'd be having and should be raising together right before Gale's first deployment.
Melanie's struggles were real and very raw. Imagine that at a young age, she has a kid that she needs to nurture along with an absent husband whose life began to revolve around the military. Being early 20s at that time and truly needing the support of Gale then found none, Melanie did the only thing that would help her cope. Years later, her daughter's life spirals down and at that moment when Melanie was at her lowest, the one that lifts her up again is the person she never expected to see anymore: Gale.
This story is not just about love but also of redemption.
It's about building one's life back and redeeming yourself to the ones who have loved and still loves you.
It's a story that shows the spins, stumbles and falls that the characters have gone through to find themselves back in each other's lives. It does not only show the happily ever after but also the hard moments that Gale and Melanie had to go through and back to each other's arms once more.
