Faithful to My Heart

A nautical vacation turns into a quest for survival when the ship is destroyed

While some women wait for random moments to unfold and simply hope they have enough energy to respond, others strive to create their life circumstances.  Then there is that coming of age milestone when a woman finds what lies in her heart along with the courage to live it – Brooke Kent is such a woman.  She embarks on what she hopes will be a refreshing vacation, a new start after too much time with grief.  However, when the all lesbian cruise sails into a harrowing adventure, it asks more of Brooke than to be courageous, it demands she learns how to be vulnerable.
