A succession of momentous milestones has determined her life and her career, the last is when she meets Tansie Landon. Tansie, beautiful, enigmatic, fragile, is - although not yet successful - an exceptional sculptor. But Tansie's childhood of abuse and neglect has left her so emotionally scarred that love has become a source of embattlement. When Tansie begins to display towards Alix the same harshness and indifference she knew as a child, she tests Alix's love to its limit and pushes herself to the edge of destruction. In the end, Tansie's gift to Alix is a lesson in the possibilities and limitations of love.
