The interconnecting stories takes place in Sardinia, Italy with one character in all three adventures, Destiny Rose. In the first story, Taylor Maxwell, is sent back from the twenty-first century to eighteen twenty-three Sardinia through a time portal off the coastal waters in her sailboat.

Amorous feelings ignite between the two of them as they search for an answer regarding her presence in a time period where social mores, norms and attitudes of people are completely different. The characters are vivid with memorable personalities. Destiny Rose, the ship's cook is sent aboard Taylor Maxwell's disabled sailboat. What happens next is a complete surprise.
The next story Sardinia Sunset takes place in the year two-thousand and eighteen. Olivia Francesca Porcu Martin quits her job in Portland, Oregon and flies to Sardinia, Italy to purchase a home in Ollolai, Sardinia, an island west of Italy. The dilapidating homes are selling for one dollar and twenty-five cents to boost Ollolai's declining population. Olivia convinces her friend, Taylor Maxwell to join her on the flight to Sardinia.
