Grief really was a circular staircase. After losing Jason, her best friend since preschool, Evelyn's world comes to a sudden halt. But, time doesn't stop for her. When she surfaces out of her delirium, a full life still awaits her; a life she didn't want anymore. Now a fragment of her former self, she trudges on - making it through everyday but not really living. The only respite she finds are in isolation, and deep dreamless nights. But one stubborn guy refuses to leave her alone, determined to prove that life could be beautiful even beyond your worst winter.
