A look at how trying to keep something secret can affect your relationship with others. Alonna made a purity promise as a teen and she kept to it, even when many of those who made the promise with her did not. But after college, while living away from family and friends, she gets into a relationship which she thinks will lead to marriage and gives in. She finds herself pregnant and the baby's father pays for her to have an abortion. Alonna hides this because she feels people will shun her if they know--yet she still wants to help troubled youth, some of who will be unwed mothers.

The last thing Alonna expects is to fall for a guy she meets. She struggles with wanting a relationship with him and wanting to stay true to her renewed purity promise. The poor man gets the blame for many things that both of them contribute to. He must see something in her because he sticks around through several episodes of bad treatment by her. ( )
