Cousins and childhood best friends Dahlia and Sunny Gordon shared a love for making music that was as radiant as the California sunshine. But a darkness was descending on Sunny that would ultimately plunge her into a nightmare of solitude and schizophrenia and tear their lives apart.
Years later, Dahlia's dream of making it in the L.A. music business rests on one forgotten song. Desperate for success, she must find her cousin again in order to secure fame and fortune. There are no depths Dahlia will not sink to in order to get what she wants -- even if it means moving her cousin, demons and all, into her own home.
Yet selfish motives and greed are, remarkably, leading Dahlia somewhere she never imagined she'd go. For the first time she will have to put someone else's needs before her own, and her own life will be unexpectedly transformed in the process.

Iris Rainer Dart is the author of eight novels, including the much-beloved New York Times bestseller Beaches. The mother of two children, she lives in California with her husband.From AudioFile:
Moira Driscoll's hushed voice gets a good story off to a slow start, but listeners who hang in through the first couple of tapes will be glad they did. A down-on-her-luck songwriter tries to stage a comeback through her schizophrenic cousin. Their separate journeys intertwine through paths of music, family history, and romantic love to daring destinations for each. While Driscoll's breathy narrative never lose its muzzy quality, her characterizations exhibit individualism and depth, particularly those of the two cousins. Her portrayal of a young child doesn't ring true, but this insignificant character matters little. Driscoll's compassion for complex people and situations saves the performance.
