Julia Longley is determined NOT to repeat her mother's mistake and marry the wrong guy. She thinks she has found the perfect one in Nick, a handsome, charming, and successful star reporter for the newspaper where Julia is a photojournalist.
But when her coverage of a tragic and bloody accident leaves her in a temporary state of blindness, Nick is anything but loving and supportive, and Julia must search alone for a career more suited to her. Her choice: go back to school and get a degree in counseling.
Soon Julia finds herself juggling the demands of finishing her education along with planning their wedding, while Nick resorts to anger and manipulation to compromise with the dictates of his very imposing socialite mother. How long before Nick treats her this way? Julia wonders, as she gives in time and time again.
Part of her school assignment lands Julia at the county mental health free clinic as an intern, where her first mission is to learn to moderate a group therapy session. Nothing in any textbook, however, has prepared Julia for The Headshrinker's Brigade. What Julia learns from this motley band of suffering souls gives her the strength to make some tough decisions in her effort to find love and something even more important: herself.
