When Valerie Urniak Cardonza suffers a head injury that leaves her first in a coma, then with amnesia, she's not certain which will come back first -- her memory or the person who wants her dead.
Valerie has no memory of her real life. All she knows of her life comes from the dreams she had while in a coma. None of those dreams were what her life was actually like. What she's learning of her past while she waits for her memory to return is anything but favorable. What kind of a woman was she, with a teenage pregnancy and multiple marriages?
Valerie has to reconcile her coma-dream life with her real life while trying to determine who hated her enough to try to kill her.
