Summary When Malika, a young orphan in rural Pakistan, is savagely attacked, her face is left disfigured and her self-esteem destroyed. Haunted by the assault, she hides from the world, finding solace in her mathematical theories. A few years later, her intellectual brilliance is discovered and she leaves conflict-stricken Pakistan for a better education in Melbourne, where she finds herself placed with Kate - a successful plastic surgeon facing emotional insecurities of her own. Malika and Kate's lives slowly intertwine as they find within each other what each has lacked alone. At first, Kate's skills appear to offer a simple solution to Malika's anguish, but when tragedy strikes, the price of beauty is found to be much higher than either of them could have known.
