Lieutenant Eleanor (Ellé) Kilian of the 1st Marine Special Operations Battalion wants three things out of life: to enjoy a successful military career, to marry the love of her life, Ralph Shaw, and to adopt one of the war orphans. During a security sweep of the military base, Ellé and her Marine Corps Unit rescue a lost child from the wilderness of Afghanistan named Safiya and are caught in the concussion wave of a roadside bomb. Miraculously, they survive. Convinced her survival from the blast is an auspicious sign, Ellé makes a rash, career-ending decision by adopting Safiya. Living a quiet life on the northwest coast of Florida, Ellé's marriage and motherhood seems idyllic. Then, anomalies with Safiya begin surfacing.
