After three surgeries on a knee injured in a car accident, journalist Dana Whitaker would give anything to walk normal again, but facing yet another physical therapist and his torture chamber terrified her. Her new PT expected her to do things she wasn't capable of doing. Yet, giving up was not an option.
Physical therapist Michael Gordon knew his latest patient's dark sunglasses and sharp attitude were defense mechanisms to keep people from seeing how she really felt.

He would treat Dana Whitaker like any other patient, and forget for the time being that a reporter had damn near destroyed his career.
