The novel follows Katelyn, who leaves her seemingly perfect life and sets out on a quest to rediscover herself.

However, character development is the main theme explored in this novel, and D’Paiva delivers on that front with great skill. While some complex themes may have been sidelined, the story’s main goal is to take readers on a journey of personal growth and transformation.
