Mike Silvers, a busy neurosurgeon with more than his share of clinical triumphs, is haunted by those patients he couldn’t cure.
Erin Gustino, the youngest daughter of a wealthy and influential family, suffers an awful brain injury. Mike saves her life. But healing from her physical wound is a walk in the park compared to recovering from her psychological trauma. Erin’s desperate parents turn to Jane, the child’s favorite teacher, for help.
Jane McCorvey, twenty-something and full of life, takes Erin under her wing. She’d been told that she’d never have kids of her own. Jane's world comes crashing down, when, after a seizure, Mike diagnoses her with brain cancer. At the same time, she discovers she is three months pregnant. Mike insists her best chance for long-term survival is to terminate the pregnancy.
