When being beautiful means you are constantly criticised, how would you react?
Ellie Paxton has endured more than her fair share of criticism – simply because she's beautiful.
Frustrated by a long string of empty relationships, Ellie makes a promise not to date for six months. The same day, she is rescued by the handsome but enigmatic Nathaniel.
Thinking it's unlikely she'll ever see him again, Ellie unburdens herself to him and then they part.
Wanting a fresh start, Ellie leaves her country town and moves to Sydney. An unexpected reunion with her best friend from high school leads her straight to Nathaniel. Appearing reserved and aloof, she discovers this is merely his way of dealing with his intense attraction for her.
But what about her promise?
Ellie has another pressing problem – no job. Frustrated, she gives in to an impulse which could jeopardise any hope of her having a relationship with Nathaniel.
Will he be able to forgive her? And when will Ellie learn to 'let go and let God'?
