Beautiful Scars | COMING SUMMER 2017
"Where'd you get those scars? How blue is your heart? Is it sad enough to break? She said it's sad enough to break..."
Nadia Mikhailov has had to put everything about herself behind her and care for the people around her all her life. She's had to keep in all of her emotions, all her fears, all her wishes in order to make sure she can give everything to her family. And now, with an autistic kid who for which she doesn't know how to help, a mother in the hospital who, while she wasn't the best of mother's, is all she has left of her old life, and a failing business that isn't enough to support herself, her kid, and her mother's expensive hospital bills, she's crumbling. Hard.
However, when she finds a man who's willing to listen, willing to help her figure her life out, willing to act as a crutch to lean on to stop her from breaking, and who's willing to care for her even with all of her emotional and physical baggage, it's almost unbelievable. What's even more unbelievable is that he stayed.
