After an impromptu serenade in an abandoned ballroom, MSU veterinary medicine student, Catherine Sealy, wonders who the enigmatic young man known only to her as “Daniel,” really is. She later discovers he is Daniel LaMont, the beloved lead singer of an up and coming East Lansing rock band. She also learns that her vixen of a roommate, Beth Shaker, has set her eye on him. And Beth Shaker always gets what Beth Shaker wants. Yet a timeless relationship between Catherine and Daniel flourishes, and their love is culminated in their first kiss while sitting atop a great fallen willow over Looking Glass River…the same river in which Daniel secretly almost drowns shortly thereafter. The freakish incident forces Daniel to search out a ghastly truth; a truth feels unable to reveal even to his closest friend and the band’s manager, Joey. And, especially, horrifically, he cannot tell Catherine. Should Beth have her way with him after all? Should he run, run, and run, becoming his mother’s ‘Gingerbread Boy” all over again? The choices Daniel feels forced to make could not only cause him to lose his career, but his one true love.
