CLOUD NINE follows Sarah's relationship with Will Burke, a charter pilot with an ex-wife and a troubled teenage daughter. Of course, Will and Sarah fall in love (they are, predictably, the last ones to discover the depth of their feelings for each other). His presence helps her relax with her estranged family and she accepts his daughter, Susan. Susan, by the way, only wears her deceased brother's socks --- an example of her personality quirks. These odd little facts lend authenticity to a familiar tale, making Sarah Talbot's world more believable.
Will saves Sarah's son, Michael, from drowning (something he couldn't do for his own son); thereby easing his guilt. Sarah persuades Michael to return with her to New York. Her father explains his silence around her as a symptom of his anguish over her mother's death. Finally, Sarah suffers a relapse and survives a plane crash.
