After many years of darkness, Winter never thought that she'd be happy or safe again. Her whole world changed when she met Liam Larson, a charming young doctor determined to be her knight in shining armor. When a brutal night unleashes vicious reminders of her past, Winter must struggle to hold on to the little bit of happiness she has found.
When everything begins to fall apart, Liam's strength and kindness might not be enough to save her. Battling with the betrayal of her family, terrifying nightmares, and frequent reminders of her enemy that make daily life difficult, Winter's first instinct is to run away. She is tired of being the victim and living in a cruel, crowded city where she doesn't feel like she belongs.
But Liam promises her that if she only trusts him, he can change everything. And that's exactly what he attempts to do, starting with an operation to heal her eyes, and then her heart...
Liam did not realize how serious Winter's injuries were after her accident. He was beside himself with grief when she fell unconscious and wouldn't wake up.
After a minor coma, Winter finally wakes up to a world she can partially see-- and she has no clue why. She does not remember her eye surgery, and she has no idea who Liam is. In fact, she does not remember the last three years of her life. She even insists on being called Helen.
Liam feels lucky that Helen doesn't remember his recently exposed lies-- he feels like he has been given a second chance to make things right. But without her memories of the horrible things that happened to her, Helen seems like a different person and Liam finds himself struggling to connect with her. Can he cope with the guilt of the harm that he's caused her?
And can he make a headstrong and carefree Helen fall in love with him all over again?

As Liam's mental health declines and his long hours at the hospital take a toll on his body, Helen grows desperate and turns to Liam's best friend, Owen, for assistance.

A downward spiral of agony and hurt.
He was my brother, my protector,
Suddenly, I'm struggling for safety, searching for survival,
And ready to destroy whoever took him from me.
For now, I'm Sophie Shields and this is my tragedy.
