Ellie has the perfect life: a handsome husband, a gorgeous daughter and a baby on the way. And then her husband Max is in an accident and develops amnesia. Suddenly he can’t remember the last four years of his life… including his entire relationship with Ellie.
Now her husband is like a stranger – he’s not the man she married at all. At first Ellie is devastated – but as she and Max slowly get to know one another again, she starts to think that maybe this is the first time they’ve ever really seen each other clearly.
But then Ellie finds out that Max was keeping a shocking secret from her before he had the accident. Has their new beginning been nothing but a false start?
