Life experiences mark a person. The death of Sally Hughes’ mother from breast cancer leaves Sally with a painful emotional scar and the discovery of a lump in her own breast frightens her to her core.
Sally meets Paul, the brother of her best friend’s new husband, and learns that the former Marine is recovering from injuries sustained during his last combat tour . Reacting to the demons that continue to assault him in the night, Paul insists he doesn’t need medical intervention, even as a leg wound refuses to heal. As attracted as Sally is to Paul, she refuses to confide in him about her own need for medical help.
Additional complications arise with the return of Paul’s previous lover and the discovery that Sally is pregnant with Paul’s baby. How can they resolve their fears, set aside the past, and reach beyond being just friends to make a life together?
