Olivia Callahan’s quiet, orderly life is shattered when she regains consciousness in a hospital and discovers she is paralyzed and cannot remember a thing, including her identity. The fragmented bits of conversation she hears in her comatose state help piece together that an apparent assault had landed her in the hospital, but nobody knows who attacked her or why. Admitted as a Jane Doe, she becomes a local news story. When she is recognized, her family is stunned at the change in her and despondent at the thought she might never recover her memory. Now, in spite of a brain injury that has rewired her personality, Olivia is on a mission to reclaim her life. As clarity surfaces and she starts to understand who she was, she is shocked. Could she really have been that person? And if so, does she want her old life back?
