Finding Rilla waiting on the docks at Alcudia Harbor brings back so many memories to Coreopsis, from the joy and innocent play as children to the awkwardness of unrequited crushes and a mortifying kiss in adolescence. Now a naval cadet with shore leave, Core finds Rilla still makes thon's heart leap with delight and trepidation. Can eight days together mend the old misunderstandings and overcome the current obstacles their two very different worlds put between them?
