After Megan meets Scott Spencer at BYU and later marries him in the temple, she has no doubts that her "happily ever after" fantasy has become a reality.
But Scott suddenly becomes verbally abusive and has unrealistic expectations of how Megan should dress and act. When Megan consistently finds traces of pornographic websites on Scott's computer and his promises to stop never amount to anything, she knows it is time for a change. Ignoring his pleading and her family's inability to recognize Scott's mistakes, Megan immediately accepts a job offer with a prestigious law firm in Boston - a place where nobody knows who she is or what she has been through.
The facade Megan has created of a put-together, the successful attorney only masks the scars created by Scott's abuse. If Megan is to move forward with her life and have happiness once again, she must regain her sense of self-worth and be willing to accept the love that others have to offer.
