A young reporter is assigned what she thinks will be a boring report on the lives of two elderly nursing home residents. She finds that their story is a wonderful tale of intense love, over the length of their entire lives. The adventure begins with the tale of Mike who was switched at birth for one of a pair of twins. He has an unexplained but intense love for his sister Mary, and he discovers that she feels the same for him. A criminal mob intervenes in their lives, and the story takes a different and exciting turn.
The story is really about the trials these two young people had to endure before living their happy life, particularly Mike. The more Mike tried to protect Mary the more danger he found himself in. The more I listened the more I was drawn in.
