Autumn Evans has a career she loves, a wedding to plan, and a secret that could destroy both. Even though her job--working with underprivileged kids at a Compton school--is deeply fulfilling, Autumn feels something is missing from her life. Her fiancé Matthew, a successful and ambitious surgeon, expects Autumn to assume the role of perfect partner, but lately she feels her sense of control slipping away.
When a crisis hits and Autumn is physically injured, she returns to her childhood home to heal. There, she slowly begins to question everything she's come to accept about herself, her family, and her man, especially as she watches her mother and sister deal with their own relationship dilemmas. But soon Autumn realizes that she needs to make a choice, between fighting for what she once wanted, or claiming a life that's new and untested.
