Reeling from her husband's betrayal and struggling to rebuild her marriage, Grace daydreams about a life in which everything has returned to normal. But even through her thin veil of optimism she can see that her life is unravelling before her eyes. Soon, however, she finds that a fantasy is being woven around her. A book enters her life, one unlike any she has ever read. And she meets Richard, the man who wrote it, a man unlike any she has ever known. One shows her all that is truly important in her life. The other threatens to take it away. And once the line between fiction and truth has blurred, Grace discovers that Richard's imagination is unwilling to ever let her go.
