Virgilia is a young woman in southern Florida during the late seventies. She’s forced to take a job as a maid to help with university expenses. Of course, it seems like a cliche but when she meets Cass, their love breaks the rules.
Virgilia had a tough childhood. Her mother died when she was eight and her father, well, he would have been better if he were an absentee. But somehow she made it and wasn’t going to let anything get in her way. Cass Baxter was unexpected. She never understood what it meant to have someone who was for her until she met him.
Their relationship was more precious to her than the air she breathed. That’s why when Cass went missing, she had to figure out how to survive again on her own. Not easy when you know what it means to need and be needed.
