Ashley and Samantha Taylor are identical twins with completely different personalities. On the eve of their sixteenth birthday, a drunk driver slams into the family car on a lonely highway. With their parents dead and Ashley blinded, the girls must cope with the tragedy and redefine their lives.
Just minutes older than Samantha, Ashley is the serious twin who always wanted to be a psychiatrist. She believes it’s her responsibility to care for her beautiful but insecure sister, even as the girls’ devoted grandparents step in to raise them. Ashley suffers double the stress as she suppresses her grief so that Samantha can lean on her.
Five years later, Ashley has excelled as a blind student at Harvard University, determined to reach her career goals despite her disability. At the eve of her entrance into medical school, her long-awaited seeing eye dog finally arrives and she meets Thomas Wolfe, the man of her dreams. Samantha’s in demand as a top model, jetting around the world to fashion magazine photo shoots, partying and playing the field.
It’s time to spread their wings, so the twins move into their own condos, right next door to one another. With money in the bank and bright futures ahead, life couldn’t be better . . . until someone vandalizes Ashley’s place, tries to run down her best friend, and threatens to harm Samantha.
As Ashley’s old terrors resurface, she hires a security agency to investigate. When the mysteries begin to clear, the leads point directly to Samantha. Or is there an accomplice? When Ashley finally lets her guard down to grieve her losses, she must summon every ounce of her old resolve to face the shocking facts.
