Sometimes you have to shed the identity of who you think you should be to live your life. Sometimes that identity gets ripped right out from under you. Such is the story of Renee Cardone and Anna Maria Castrovinci, best friends since kindergarten. However, when they were fifteen, their friendship turned into something more. Even though their attraction felt genuine and pure, guilt from their Catholic upbringing hovered over them. Renee, intent on living a life acceptable to society, began to date Tom Del Fino, which broke Annie's heart. Renee and Tom married and built a respectable life together. They had a good marriage and two beautiful daughters. Then fate slapped them in the face and flipped Renee's life upside down.
