Sable--her bestselling novels have made her a star, but the woman who has everything, in fact, has nothing but a past she is desperate to hide
Elly--the intellectual who has hidden herself within the walls of academia, afraid to admit she is tired of being alone
Barbara Ann--the talent behind twenty-six romance novels wakes up one day to discover she's lost control of her career, her sanity and her family
Beth--her popular mysteries have become the only way she can fight against the secret tyranny of an abusive husband
