Julia Warwick is in a hospital for people with mental conditions, battling hysterical blindness. Her husband decided that institutionalizing her was the most prudent choice.

Prior to her blindness, Julia had been a loving wife and mother, and an artist. But secrets from the past reared their ugly head and Julia will have to face them in order to heal.

Christian Carver has served years in prison for a murder he didnt commit. He hardened to survive in prison, trying hard to forget the young woman he loved who doubted his innocence. Now released from jail, he goes home to start again and maybe even discover the truth.

But as Julia begins to unravel the past to find the cause of her blindness, it becomes clear that she holds the key to some truths that no one wants revealed.

Ms. Richards possesses a magical way with words and demonstrates that brilliantly in this book. Her sense of storytelling draws readers into a different world, blissfully unaware of anything else around them.(Jun., 512 pp., $6.99)
