Twenty-something Samantha McCormick wakes up in the hospital to learn she has a spinal cord injury from a car accident, and she’s paralyzed from the waist down. It doesn’t take her long to start to get the hang of the new physical challenges of her life. But she’s haunted by the blurred lines between dreams and a fractured reality full of broken memories of the accident. Brian Haines is the physical therapist assigned to Sam to help her regain her independence and sense of self. He’s devoted to his task, but his commitment to working with Sam seems to quickly transition from dedication to something more personal. Sam is thrilled and flattered by the attention. Yet all the while she can’t help but think she might be missing important memories and information, and she worries her new life is little more than house of cards. It’s a long, emotional journey to recovery for Sam, full of unexpected moments, love, loss, second chances, and personal discovery as she struggles to find the version of herself she once knew.
