About this item

Charlotte Godowski was used to the horrified stares she received from strangers. She'd learned to accept her facial deformity, until one cruel incident compelled her to have the surgery that changed her life forever. Charlotte Godfrey is beautiful beyond compare. In Hollywood, where such beauty is power, her rise is meteoric. Suddenly she has everything she could want: acceptance, a future and a love she believes can see to the true beauty within. Charlotte Godowski and Charlotte Godfrey are two sides of the same women – a woman who can trust no one with her secret. But when fate forces Charlotte to deal with the truth – about her past, about the man she loves, about herself – she discovers that only love has the power to transform a scarred soul.
