Sammie Franklin’s life is already in chaos when Matt Bruckner, a brilliant violinist in her youth orchestra, is left paraplegic after a tragic car accident. When she visits him in hospital, she just wants to run away from his pain and the unfairness of it all. But somehow she can’t. By staying, can she help Matt find a reason to live? Will he ever play the violin again? As their difficult friendship begins, Sammie must come to terms with another pain–the recent death of her father.
