Caren is thirty-five years old, fifty pounds overweight, and still single. Ten years earlier, she was stacked like a brick house, an up-and-coming reporter for one of Ohio's most successful African American newspapers, and engaged to marry her high school sweetheart, but one sweet November night changed all that. She gets involved with one of Cleveland's most eligible bachelors, Councilman Robert Turner, when she is assigned to cover his plans to start a community center in the neighborhood where she was raised.

When she discovers that she is pregnant with his child, they decide to abort the child in an effort to hide their affair. However, when Robert decides to run for an Ohio State Senate seat, there's someone who suspects they have a secret and is determined to expose Councilman Turner's stand on abortion to the media by uncovering the details of the affair and the abortion. Thus, Caren's future with her fiancÚ and her reputation with her God-fearing mother are severely threatened. This flashback narrative details a year in Caren's life that reveals how what she did in the dark came to the light and changed her life.
