Theirs is a world light years away from Mary Jago's elegant new home and museum job across the park. Mary, in an uncharacteristic act of self-assertion, has left her abusive boyfriend and, in an act of humanity, has donated her bone marrow to a stranger. She then meets the fragile young man whose life she saved--Leo, flesh of her flesh, bone of her bone, a twin soul--and becomes deeply involved with him. But Mary's boldness has its price. Among the park's shattered hopes and new dreams, something dark and deadly waits for her ... eager to rob her of something more precious than life."@en ;
