Jake is a Native American Indian and his wife Charlie is an African American. In the last recent months Jake and Charlie have gone through a tragic loss, which has greatly affected their marriage. They leave New York City and move to the South, in hopes to find some solitude. This move challenges their relationship to the point that Jake finds himself wondering if their love, their marriage, is truly worth it.
This story is very unique because it is told by a man's perspective. Jake is deeply in love with his wife who has distanced herself from him after she miscarried their third child. As Jake tries to reach out to Charlie he finds that their troubles are beyond the loss of their child, but there have been even greater issues between them which need to be resolved. This story is about the journey of love, Jake's determination to win back the affection of his wife in a place where interracial relationships are not as warmly embraced.
