It was the girl, of course. The girl from the station. The girl with the smile and the skin and the eyes … 

Joe is hooked from the moment he sees Candy. What is it that catches his eye? Is it her hair, her smile, or just the way she’s standing? When they chat over coffee there’s an instant attraction, but can love ever be this sweet? As the bitter truth about Candy’s dangerous world emerges, Joe must decide whether love and hope are worth fighting for.
