A picture, they say, is worth a thousand words. But Joanna Holbrook-Sutherland senses that the photograph she encounters at an exhibit in a trendy London gallery could change her life -- if only she can locate the homeless woman whose haunting face has been captured within it. A face that has also been haunting her dreams.
Jo knows it's completely unrealistic to believe that she'll be able to find one beleaguered blonde among the thousands of men and women trying to stay alive on the cold, hard streets of London. It's also completely out of character for Jo to even try -- the spoiled socialite is noted for her bed hopping and bad behavior, not her good works.
Unfortunately, dropping the search doesn't seem to be an option. With a compulsiveness that amazes her family and her friends and frightens herself, Jo painstakingly assembles the crumbs of information that eventually will lead her to a frigid park in Whitechapel and to Rocky, a young woman with fearful secrets. She has no idea that the hardest part is still ahead, dealing with the debilitating physical and mental consequences of living on the street for five years; and with the horrors that drove Rocky there in the first place.
