Julia Sterling is a renowned psychiatrist's wife. She immerses herself in the world of phone sex in order to research a book. As a result, the profound changes in herself are the catlyst for the life altering actions that take place in this book, both for her and those around her. Side note, Rose's new Morgan Snow series are based around the Butterfield Institute which is introduced in this story. The book provides some good background information for the Snow series.
