Publisher's SummaryAfter spending three weeks in a coma, Amy Thompson wakes up with no memory of the last two years. She remembers being a college student, but she can't recall when she graduated, why she traded in her Jimmy Choos for Doc Martens, or how she became estranged from her family.

The doctors believe that Amy will regain her lost memories, either little by little or all at once. Meanwhile, pieces of her past return to her in her dreams. She sees Adam - or someone who resembles Adam - but this man is still very different from the one who stands before her. Now, Amy must sift through her memories to discover who she was before the coma, who she is now, who she wants to be - and whether Adam is really as trustworthy as he claims.
