Brielle Eden, a successful novelist living in New York City, is drawn to Paris for reasons unknown to her. Once there, she will quickly discover that not all is as it seems. When she wakes up in a hospital for the mentally insane, Brielle's perfect nightmare is about to begin. Confused and badly injured, she's being held against her will by a psychiatrist who believes she is impersonating a young woman who'd died six months earlier. As her world threatens to spin out of control, a mystery man appears promising to rescue her...and to give her the answers she desperately seeks.
Brielle Eden doesn't know what to believe. She wakes from a coma and inexplicably finds herself in the psychiatric ward of a mysterious Parisian hospital with no memory of how she came to be there. She can't fathom why one of the nurses would want to kill her, or why the psychiatrist in charge of her care thinks she stole the identity of a recently murdered young woman. And just who is this god-like man, whom only she can see and hear? Is he a friend or foe? His voice haunts her every waking moment. Has Brielle lost her ability to comprehend between reality and what is real?
In the past: Brielle Eden is doing all she can to recover her lost memories-and to convince a doctor of her true identity. All while learning the identity of a stalker, and stopping a sadistic nurse hellbent on keeping her in the past. In the present: Brielle is profoundly drawn to two connecting hearts carved by nameless young lovers many decades ago. Soon she is inspired to discover who the lovers were, and why there is a mysterious hole in the center of one of the hearts.
