  • When Sarah, a lonely and deeply troubled woman, inadvertently enters an AA meeting, she is embraced by its members who believe that she too is an alcoholic. What the meeting is all about, she doesn't know... but her motive for going to the community center is to meet face-to-face with Charlie, one of the members who she has seen regularly standing in front of the center adjacent to her window just before what she supposes is some sort of Bible study. She likes the way Charlie moves and the way he smiles. As fate would have it, Sarah and Charlie begin to fall in love. The big question is: Will her continuing attendance at the meeting and her pretense of being an alcoholic weave itself into an entangling web? Will she muster up the courage to tell him, "My name is Sarah, and I'm not an alcoholic," knowing that she may lose him as a result?

  • Book editor Sarah Winston works and lives in solitude at home. She finds herself deeply lonesome following the death of her only friend Amy. Constantly, she checks her answering machine which never has any messages on it to be heard. In her state of "friendlessness", she alienates people right and left due to her unyielding obsessive and pedantic nature, which presents as a need to control everyone and everything around her. Sarah does not even read the stories in the manuscripts she edits, but rather fastidiously checks for grammar, punctuation and spelling. However, she does crave companionship on her terms. That need is increased when she spies a man to whom she is attracted from her window who she assumes attends regular meetings of some sort at the community center adjacent to her house. She decides to go to the center, and in the process gets sucked into a meeting in progress that she soon finds out is Alcoholics Anonymous (AA). After discovering what the meeting is all about, she has no intention of ever going back, despite the man, Charlie Manning's regular attendance. However, it is a bit too late because of the persuasive encouragement of people within the meeting who want to help Sarah overcome her "drinking problem" -- one of those people being Charlie's teen son, Kit. As Charlie and Sarah begin to date, Sarah slowly begin to soften, having Charlie and the other AA members in her life. However, their relationship is complicated, not only by the lie pertaining to the reason for Sarah being at the meetings which will necessarily have to come to light if they are to have a future as a couple, but other issues, not to mention some deep wounds, which have yet to be disclosed on both sides.
