Perils and inherent dangers of the sea, and of island living, are cloaked behind a facade of sunny beaches, balmy tradewinds and swaying palm trees.

In "Child of a Storm," during the late '60s, the ketch Mercy, sinks during a sea storm off Culebra near the Virgin Islands. Ciara Malloy assumes custody of her drowned fianc´┐Ż's son and learns a devastating secret about the boy that changes her life forever.

In the late '90s, underwater photographer Lillian Avery gets "Caught in a Rip" current and swept out to sea off Kauai in Hawaii. In facing death, she finds a way to leave behind a message of who she was.

A few years later, in "Hurricane Secret," the two former neighbors from Puerto Rico reunite on Kauai. A hurricane wreaks havoc in both their lives and threatens to expose secrets tightly held since the sinking of the Mercy.
