Devastated by divorce, Sophie irrationally believes the end of her marriage reflects a personal failure. When she is drawn into the world of Nick Bergman, she thinks she's met the Prince Charming of her dreams. Champagne, flowers, and romance obscure Nick's dark side.
Basing her decisions on emotion rather than her true values, Sophie strives to please Nick beyond all reason. Unable to say no to Nick's scheming, she is drawn deeper and deeper into his world of drugs and abuse, from which there seems to be no escape. Then, diagnosed with a brain tumor and knowing the losses surgery could bring, Sophie is finally forced to come to terms with her life in ways she could never have imagined.
Determined to put an end to her marriage as the abuse worsens, Sophie vows if she survives surgery, she will fight with every ounce of strength she has left to be free of her abuser.
