Thirty-two-year-old Rebecca Ivy escapes a church where sin abounds even more than she realizes. Betrayed and broken, the ugliness of her past prevents her from recognizing the beauty in the mirror. She soon catches the watchful eye of her Jewish co-worker, Ted Margolin, who sees a woman worthy of his protection. As an unexpected romance blooms, Rebecca struggles to reconcile all she's been taught with the golden sparkle in the mighty Margolin's eyes. Old family secrets come to light, and Rebecca battles rumors and threats designed to keep her silent. Meanwhile, Ted must fight for Rebecca and against his own doubts about God. Rebecca's unwavering faith in Jesus confounds and intrigues Ted, but will it be enough to give them a tabula rasa (blank slate) to erase the past and create a new story of their own?
