Sicily Coyne was just thirteen when her face was disfigured and her firefighter father was killed in a school fire. Twelve years later, a young surgeon offers hope in the form of a revolutionary new surgery that may give Sicily back the grace and facial functions she lost.

Raised by an aunt who taught her to lead a normal life, and engaged to a wonderful man who knew her long before the accident, Sicily rejects the offer. She knows who she is, and so do the people who love her. But when a secret surfaces that shatters Sicily's carefully constructed world, she calls off the wedding and agrees to the radical procedure in order to begin a new life.

Her beauty restored virtually overnight, Sicily rushes toward life with open arms, seeking new experiences, adventures, and love. But she soon discovers that her new face carries with it risks that no one could have imagined. Confronting a moral and medical crisis that quickly becomes a matter of life and death, Sicily is surrounded by experts and loving family, but the choice that will transform her future -- for better or for worse -- is one she must make alone.
