              What happens when you lose your marriage, and then gain your ex's dad's trust? Kate Bergin, a married Manhattan attorney, was always attracted to aviation and learned to fly during her marriage, acquiring her pilot's license. Kate and her beloved father-in-law, Warren Ethan, a pi...lot who made millions in business, share a special bond over aviation, honor, and mutual respect. Kate's husband, Rick Ethan, the scion who's found a mistress, divorces Kate, even insisting that she resume her maiden name after more than twelve years of marriage. In her late 30s, Kate loses her husband, her home, and the life of wealth and privilege she's enjoyed as an Ethan and returns to her native Cape Cod to start all over. She hangs out a shingle, practicing law in a storefront in Hyannis and becomes an airline transport pilot working for Cape Air Charter. She settles into her new life as a single, small town lawyer working with her sister-like sidekick, Celeste, and flying the wealthy between the mainland and Nantucket and the Vineyard. One of Kate's passengers, Steven Philips, a private equity banker, sparks her romantic interest. Not long into this new life on Cape Cod, Kate is notified that her former father-in-law is dead and she's been named the executor and trustee of his estate worth a fortune. Kate is beckoned to L.A., where she is confronted by her ex, his new wife, and Warren's team of advisors. In probate court, Kate also meets Lyndsey, a woman who appears out of nowhere claiming to be Warren's biological daughter, demanding legitimacy and her filial share of Warren's estate. Kate strives to fulfill her role and marshal the millions to fund the trust Warren created, but encounters trouble from the start. Kate's new passenger/friend, Steven Philips-the banker that she's been flying to the Vineyard-helps her, to a point; but then it all goes terribly wrong. Can Kate set things right by employing her skills as a lawyer and an aviator, and accepting a little help from new friend
