Confined to her couch, Clovis Sohn spends her days and nights dreaming, drifting further away from the outside world with each passing day. But Clovis's dreams are also real, giving her a glimpse into the lives of those around her...
When Clovis begins to dream of publishing assistant Ae-jung's complicated life, it brings a momentary interest to her pale existence between dream and waking. Mistress of many secrets, Ae-jung is dedicated, hard-working, and beset by three very different suitors: famous writer Hyun-jun, well-known composer Yong-hwa, and Clovis's half-brother Jessamy. When a moment of unthinking sympathy twines Clovis's dreams with the bored, playful Yong-hwa, she must decide whether to keep dreaming in the comfort of her chaise lounge, or to awaken into a reality that is by no means so sure or familiar as her dreams.
