Candace “Candleshine” Thatcher dedicates her life to nursing and loses her heart to Lieutenant Jeffrey Fairfax during World War 2. The wounded Marine washes up on an island in the South Pacific where Candleshine and survivors from their sunken ship are stranded.
Promises made under threat of invasion must be postponed. Nursing in the jungle requires service beyond the call of duty by Candleshine and her two fellow nurses.
Separation from Jeffrey follows evacuation under fire. Can a love born in the midst of war survive? Will Jeffrey ever return to his beloved Montana cattle ranch with Candleshine as his wife?
