Faith Freeman has a devastating secret. When she was eleven years old, she caught her step-father molesting her twin sister, Hope. Years later, Faith is a successful literary agent and engaged to be married. Her twin, however, leads a self-destructive life of drugs and prostitution on the Harlem streets. But when Hope seems to have set her sights on Faith’s man, the bonds of sisterhood are cruelly tested. Will the truth about their darkest hour finally be revealed?
