Jennie and Thomas are falling in love again, but Tasha, one of his children, is determined to destroy their relationship.
Jennie had done that herself a number of years earlier when, in the midst of a manic episode, she had deserted Thomas, choosing a life of shameless debauchery in place of their marriage. Tasha knows of Jennie’s earlier life, and she has discovered that Jennie now takes medication to control her behavior.
Only a weakling depends on medicine, Tasha tells her. Even worse, she insists that, even if Jennie does take meds, she will become ill again, that another manic episode surely lies ahead, perhaps just around the bend. She reminds Jennie that if she were to relapse after marrying Thomas, she would ruin his life a second time.
Jennie wants to prove she can live without her medicine. As she considers tossing it, though, she must answer the question: is knowing she can live without the medication worth the risk that she will fail the test and be unable to cope?
If you like a good psychological romance, you will enjoy following Jennie as she goes a second round with her demons, the same ones that shattered her marriage two decades earlier. How will she stop them from destroying the love and happiness that finally seem to be within her reach?
