Emma Clarke, a successful and attractive novelist in her 40's, survives a long, fierce duel of wills with her domineering mother only to feel that, like her mother, she is destined to destroy everything she touches. Sensing Emma's troubles, her friends rally round, but the only one who is really able to help is her hired chauffeur, Giovanni, a diabolically handsome Italian. With his deep concern, his strong, yet tender masculinity, and his very real humanity, Giovanni unlocks Emma's emotional prison and gently draws her back to the world of loving.
