Fiercely independent Helen Winters was born completely blind, but she vowed never to let her disability keep her down. She did not expect a traumatic event to devastate her life and force her to drop out of college. Disillusioned by the cruelty of people, Helen retreated from society to live by herself as a reclusive writer in the woods—where no one could ever hurt her again.
When a brilliant young doctor shows up on her doorstep, promising her that his new research can give her the ability to see for the first time, Helen stubbornly refuses. She has learned not to trust anyone, and to rely only on herself. But Dr. Liam Larson will not take no for an answer. He makes it his personal mission to rescue Helen from her loneliness, and bring joy into her world once more—the joy she has denied herself for so long.
When Helen’s demons come racing back into her life, threatening to rip her apart and destroy the strength she has carefully rebuilt, Liam is the only one who might be able to save her.
Can he reach the broken girl in time, helping her to heal and see the world in a different light? Or will Helen’s grief send her spiraling out of control, lost to him forever?

Ferozmente independiente Helen Winters nació completamente ciega, pero ella prometió no dejar que su discapacidad la mantenga abajo. No esperaba un acontecimiento traumático que devastase su vida y la obligarse a abandonar la universidad. Desilusionada por la crueldad de la gente, Helen se retiró de la sociedad para vivir por sí misma como una escritora solitaria en el bosque —donde nadie podría lastimarla.
Cuando un brillante joven médico aparece en su puerta, prometiéndole que su nueva investigación puede darle la capacidad de ver por primera vez, Helen se niega obstinadamente. Ella ha aprendido a no confiar en nadie, y a confiar sólo en sí misma. Pero el Dr. Liam Larson no acepta un no por respuesta. Él hace de su misión personal rescatar a Helen de su soledad, y llevar alegría a su mundo una vez más —la alegría que se ha negado a sí misma durante tanto tiempo.
Cuando los demonios de Helen vienen corriendo de nuevo a su vida, amenazando con separarla lejos y destruir la fuerza que ha reconstruido cuidadosamente, Liam es el único que podría ser capaz de salvarla.
¿Puede él llegar a la chica rota con el tiempo, ayudándola a sanar y ver el mundo con otros ojos? ¿O el dolor de Helen la enviará en su espiral fuera de control, perdiéndolo para siempre?

Excerpt

“I wish Owen would stop babbling so that I could actually talk to you for five minutes,” Liam muttered. “You’re such an interesting person.”
“Me?” I ask in confusion. “I’m just your average hermit writer.”
“Exactly,” he says. I hear a smile in his voice. “I don’t know too many of those. You’re part of a very rare species.”
I look down to hide my embarrassment. I can feel him staring at me; the tension is beginning to grow thick in our small quarters. He is sitting very close to me, even if we are separated by the back of his seat. When Owen was in the car with us, the atmosphere was light and funny. But now, it’s dark and intense; it’s laced with something I don’t understand and don’t want to discover. I try to think of something to say to take his focus away from me and my life. “It’s just a job,” I say dumbly.
He scoffs. “Just a job? Helen, I work with other doctors every day. We heal people, and it should be glamorous; we should feel like heroes. But in truth, it gets... mechanical. At some point, you start to question how important your work really is. I mean, you can heal a person’s body... but that doesn’t really heal the person. We aren’t just bodies, you know? That’s where your books come into play.” He pauses, and I can feel him giving me an earnest look. “Books are medicine for the soul. They heal the eternal parts of a person.”
“Liam,” I say in surprise.
“You are a doctor of sorts, too,” he tells me, “except for the fact that your work persists. If a person reads a good book—they become permanently changed. They can’t even help it. They can’t unlearn what they’ve learned. It will always be with them. Our bodies all crumble and fade, and we’ll all eventually lose our eyesight near the end, along with many other basic bodily functions. But I like to think that even when we’re gone, the soul retains some of that wisdom—some of that feeling. What I do is simple science, but what you do is... magic.”
“Stop talking,” I whisper. “Seriously, stop talking right now.”
“Why?” he says, somewhat hurt at the interruption.
“Because I’m pretty sure that if you keep talking like this... I’ll have to marry you, or something,” I explain nervously. “So just zip it.”
