Susan Bean works in the research department of a large law firm. Her life has always been calm, ordered and unexciting. Romance was never in the cards for her. Things change suddenly from the moment she meets new attorney, Gordon Davis. As over the weeks they become close, discovering similar interests, similar attitudes, she is convinced that they belong together. Susan will anything to prove she loves Gordon. Anything. So when Gordon becomes seriously ill, Susan donates her own liver. Then her blood. Then a kidney. She doesn’t mind; she likes to think she and Gordon are becoming like one flesh. And after many years of illness, Susan’s donations bring Gordon a new perspective on life, work, sports, food – and love. But when his perspectives start to veer from hers, Susan decides she needs to show Gordon the light. Which she does – in an unexpected way.
