When Macy Dillon was five years old her father encouraged her to draw a
picture in the guestbook of a Carolina beach house. The next year, Macy
returned to discover a drawing by an unidentified little boy on the
facing page. Over the next eleven years the children continue to
exchange drawings … until tragedy ends visits to the beach house
altogether. During her final trip to Sunset, Macy asks her anonymous
friend to draw her one last picture and tells him where to hide the
guest book in hopes that one day she will return to find it — and him.
Twenty-five years after that first picture, Macy is back at Sunset
Beach — this time toting a broken family and a hurting heart. One night,
alone by the ocean, Macy asks God to help her find the boy she never
forgot, the one whose beautiful pictures touched something deep inside
of her. Will she ever find him?
