The Breaker's Climb tournament is little more than a tourist trap pitting daredevils against a steep, treacherous rock wall. But this year, it may be Harper's only hope to pay off her late father's debts. Celia, her father's housekeeper and a woman with a checkered past, doesn't think much of this foolhardy plan. She has already lost loved ones to the windy ledge that domes the Breaker's Cove and she's in no rush to lose Harper. Reasons to give up abound, but when the tournament-winning boots once worn by Celia's husband mysteriously materialize in Harper's room, her ambitions find firmer ground into which to sink their roots. As Harper embarks on her perilous ascent, she begins to wonder if the boots are the only thing working in her favor. And what if the wagging tongues are right about Celia?
