Surviving the sailing accident that killed his partner leaves professional sailor Alex Moorehouse badly damaged, both physically and emotionally. Healing only begins once Alex faces contractor Cassandra Cutler, his friend's widow -- and the woman he despises himself for loving. Then Alex's sisters hire Cassandra to rebuild their BandB, and her proximity forces Alex to go one step further. By accepting some difficult truths about himself, Cassandra and her late husband, he opens himself up to the possibility of a relationship with her. Jessica Bird concludes the Moorehouse Legacy with From the First (4.5), an edgy, intensely sensual and occasionally wryly humorous story. Not easily forgotten.
