Jenna Browning, a willowy blonde with an angel face, has it all, or so it seems on the outside. Inside, she's tormented. Her father had expected her to be the perfect child; her husband expected her to be the perfect wife. She quits her job, divorces her husband, and embarks on a journey of self-discovery that deposits her at the entrance of heaven and hell. She pens a romance novel about her abusive husband, friend who betrays her, and lawyer who would like nothing better than to be her substitute husband. All the while, however, her heart is haunted by the arrogant young boy with the brooding black eyes that she met once. . . and can't forget. . . .
