Rosa Santori hates being told what to do, mostly because she has been forced to base her life around limitations. Now she faces a fight for survival after a car accident that has changed her plans for the future.
Laura Falifax, a psychology intern at Remington Hospital, has a lot to learn from her first assignment, but her husband resents her recent success and campaigns against it. He hopes to see her fail and remain in their sheltered life.

A gripping story based on true events follows the journeys of two women facing their own struggles. Rosa, a patient with epilepsy, and Laura, a psychiatry doctoral student in an abusive marriage, meet and learn from each other's strengths.
The author's immersive descriptions of epilepsy and its effects are both fascinating and refreshing, showing how Rosa chooses to live her life despite the challenges. Laura finds inspiration in Rosa's resilience and seeks to overcome her own situation.
Highly recommended for its strong morals and deep insight into epilepsy, a must-read for anyone affected by this disease.
