What do you do when you realize at middle age that your entire life has been a lie? What do you do when you have everything you thought you ever wanted--a beautiful wife, two wonderful children, a fairy-tale house, a successful business, even a luxury automobile--and yet, there is a deep internal void. Where do you go from there?

Allen struggled deeply with these questions, but what he didn't realize was that the answers were already inside him. The answers dwelled in his feminine self that had been repressed since childhood, waiting to be expressed through the woman he would become. She was not to be denied. She was destined to be released. She was the answer to all his questions and the answer to all his dreams. She was his truth. She was Alexus Sheppard. And this is her story.
