When D.C. economist Mary "Pat" Strom meets Paul Martin, she thinks she has met the man of her dreams-attractive, sensitive, amusing, plus a successful lawyer. Their whirlwind courtship becomes a blissful marriage... until the day Pat wakes up to a complete stranger, a man who acts as though he has never seen her before. As Pat tries to discover what has happened, she realizes that she knows little about her charismatic new husband. Why does he speak French and German like a native when he claims he grew up in the south? Why does he have so much money but no family ties or history? Ultimately, Pat finds herself facing the most difficult question of all. If she finds out who Paul really is, will she still want him as her husband?
