Magdalena “Maggie” Curran is a freshman at a prestigious Virginia boarding school when her parents are killed in a car accident in Rome. Now an orphan, Maggie has only one true friend to lean on—Graham Ashford. He is the only one who can help her through the depression and night terrors that follow her parents’ death.

In her junior year, the school deems her stable enough to have a roommate, and her new friend Sarah quickly draws Maggie out of her shyness and into the dating world. While at Sarah’s house for Thanksgiving, however, she meets Sarah’s older brother, Eric, and what starts as a shy crush soon turns into terror as Eric becomes obsessed and violent toward Maggie. 

Maggie runs to the safety of Graham, now her boyfriend. But not even Graham can protect her from Eric when he assaults her in her dorm room. Eric is given a light sentence in a mental institution, and Maggie leaves everything behind and moves to her mother’s hometown of Malaga, Spain, to attend college on a music scholarship and try to find her mother’s estranged family. 

Beginning with the death of her parents, Maggie has had to reach inside herself to find the strength and resilience to move on. When she comes face-to-face with Eric again, she has to decide if she is strong enough to reclaim her life and become the woman she is meant to be.
