A novel of love, heartbreak and tortured souls

Justine lost all hope when she lost Antoine's love. An emptiness took hold of her life, a void she had once known as a child. But she finally decides that she must stop wandering and make her confession. Every week, in her psychologist's office, she tells of her torments and in doing so brings her memories back to life. She once again becomes the woman madly in love with Antoine, the man who had awakened her to forbidden pleasures. She once again becomes the woman who was betrayed. But above all, she will become the woman who finally discovers the words to help her find her way again.
