A poignant story of loss … and the healing power of love.
Architect Margaret Bradley is a rising star, renowned for her vision. In keeping with the promise she made to herself when her first mother died, she's fiercely self-reliant, traveling the country solo, enjoying her professional success.
Then she finds out she's going blind.
It's an unimaginable situation. Independence, the one thing for which she's always striven, seems impossible.
Worse, Margaret's adoptive mother, Mama Katherine, is sick. Margaret returns to her childhood home to help care for her … and to seek refuge as she grieves the loss of her sight.
Margaret is determined to prove—to her sisters, Sarah and Hannah, her mother, and herself—that she can remain self-sufficient. Then she meets Ethan, whose thoughtful gestures and provocative voice make Margaret think relying on someone else might not be so bad after all.
While one part of Margaret begins to accept this new life, another part of her—one born when she was just a little girl—fights against it. As those two sides struggle for control, Margaret must weigh losing her vision against gaining something much more significant.
