It would ruin everything if I came forward and admitted who I was. People think they want the truth but they're always disappointed. It is invariably less interesting than the mystery.Florence Darrow wants. She wants a different life, and a career as a writer. While she doesn’t have much of a plan to accomplish either, she’s sure it will work out somehow. But when she fails upwards into the chance to be personal assistant to Helen Wilcox—known to the world only as Maud Dixon, the pseudonym she used to publish a runaway best-selling novel—it seems like everything is coming up Florence. Until they are on a research trip in Morocco, and there’s a car crash, and Florence has the opportunity to become Helen and, even more importantly, Maud Dixon.
What if you wanted a different life? How did you get from A to B? How did you become the type of person who belonged in B? Florence didn't know. But Helen did. Somehow, she had learned the rules.
