This provocative, unlikely love story that starts on a New York subway car and blossoms under the windmills of the Mojave Desert. Sebastian and Maria live in worlds ruled by fear. Sebastian, a lonely seventeen-year-old, is suffocating under his dominant father's control; Maria, young mother of two, tries to keep peace at home despite her boyfriend's abuse. When their eyes meet across a subway car one night, these two strangers find a connection that neither can ignore. They dream of a new future and agree to run away together, only to find that each has kept a major secret from the other. In this tremendously moving novel, Hyde shows us how two people trapped by life's circumstances can break free and find a place in the world where love is genuine and selfless.
