Uncharted is the captivating story of a woman who is suddenly widowed after thirty years of happy marriage. As she struggles to make sense of the unexpected loss, she moves two hours away from the small New Hampshire town she called home, and its sad memories. Her dream of opening an art gallery is complicated by the condition of the house she wants to buy. The location is perfect, but it needs a complete renovation. Having worked on two prior homes with her husband, she takes on the challenge herself and sees renovating the house as a parallel to rebuilding her life and throws herself into the project.

After realizing living alone, with just a little dog, is not for her she begins online dating. The process yields mixed results, some humorous, until she meets Tim. An avid sailor, their relationship brings comfort and warmth to her life. Sailing adventures with Tim become part of their developing relationship. Once engaged to be married, they plan a boating trip from Maine to Florida. Bad weather and unexpected tribulations plague their journey but love and laughter keep them going.
