Anastasia’s fiancé’s best friend, David, returns to Seattle
after years of living overseas, her nice, stable, orderly life is
turned upside down. In denial about her own nature and the truth
about her parents’ notorious and flamboyant marriage, Anastasia
shuts down her attraction toward David. It would be too inconvenient
to like him.
Even though digging up her family history will cause pain, David is determined to coax Anastasia’s true nature out of dormancy. But if Anastasia reverts to her real character, marriage to Hugh will become impossible, and David’s best friend will be hurt. And if David doesn’t succeed in setting Anastasia’s soul free, he will lose his own chance at winning her heart.
