Sam Martin's an observer. At 81, he looks 60 & he's healthy. In business, he helped his company to international fame. Yet he missed something. Age allows him time to realize that his success didn't really matter. Left by his wife & a stranger to his kids, his solitude only increases. Now he focuses on the daily crises of his little community. Moving to Norfolk is a welcome change. Aiding a lost child leads to friendship with her family, whose needs become integral to Sam's life; a small kindness introduces the intriguing Alice, who proves he needn't only live his life through other people
