Hiding behind the protective fold of her wagasa, she yearns for freedom from her overprotective parents and the love of a man she's known only in her dreams, even at the cost of her health.
Malachi, a man who has visions of meeting an elusive shadow, uses his sense of humor and sensitive side to build their relationship. He's determined to win her love, even against the wishes of her parents.
Malachi is the type of guy who would do anything for his family, yet refuses to deny himself and the woman he loves, a chance at happiness. There love is a story of victory over bonds.
Paisley's parents are a coupe to reckon with. Proud, determined, and sparing no words on what they want for their daughter- they want her to live. Even at the cost of denying her a life.
