Imagine a love story where the girl doesn´t get the boy (or the girl) and still lives happily ever after.... The trauma of abuse as a child. A hedonistic lifestyle in London and New York during the AIDS crisis. Sex and love. Addiction. Ecstasy. Despair. A skyrocketing international career that spirals out of control. And then, a chance encounter that changes everything....

It charts a journey of transformation from suffering to self-realization. It has a message for every woman and for every man, too. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Ruth Phypers.
