Desperate to escape her abusive marriage, Lilly Crawford files for divorce, then slips away from her small east Texas hometown with little more than the clothes on her back. With broken dreams and countless regrets, she points her twelve-year-old car east, hoping and praying to find a new beginning.
Car thieves stole Adam Wakefield's Porche, his eyesight, and his identity. Once a prominent neurosurgeon in San Francisco, Adam now lives at his secluded estate in Louisiana. Fearing that is blindness is permanent and that he will never be in control of his life again, he sinks deeper into depression each day.
When her car breaks down on a back road in Louisiana, Lilly seeks helps and finds unexpected employment as Adam's caregiver. Her first encounter with him is disastrous. He reminds her too much of the angry husband she feared; she reminds him of how far he has fallen from the self-assured man he once was. But as the two spend long days together, an unexpected bond develops--one that will be tested by pain and joy and heal both of their shattered lives.
