In 1942, a young woman attempted to perform her own abortion. She only succeeds in mangling the infant's head and delivering the frail but living baby three months early. That scrappy little girl reclaims her birth name of Crystal and grows up fighting for everything she achieves—and facing repeated failures and disappointments along the way.
Her wealthy parents inundate her with every gift except affection. She grows up to have nine failed marriages and numerous failed businesses behind her. Her biological mother rejects her a second time as an adult. Dance, including exotic dancing, is the only thing that comes easy to Crystal and makes her feel alive.
But as much as she loves dancing, Crystal feels something else besides romantic love is missing. Is it the ability to accept herself as a person, without a man? Or is she searching for the unconditional love of God?
