When Sara Foster runs away from home at sixteen, she leaves behind the girl she once was. Years later, in Los Angeles, she is a bartender, renowned as much for her brilliant cocktails as for the mystery that clings to her. Across the city, Emilie Dubois takes a job arranging flowers at the restaurant Yerba Buena and embarks on an affair with the owner. The morning Emilie and Sara first meet at Yerba Buena, their connection is immediate. But the damage both women carry pulls them apart again and again. When Sara's old life catches up to her, just as Emilie has finally gained her own sense of purpose, they must decide if their love is more powerful than their pasts.
