concentrates on re-establishing her career as a dancer, though still dealing
with emotional issues relating to her life with Mark. When his friend appears
on her doorstep, Nicolette honors her late husband’s invitation and invites

Jake returns to Australia to see Nic again and also
to finalize details with his network to sail around the world making
documentaries. Will Jake follow his heart and ask Nic to give up all that she’s
worked for and sail away with him?
