Jealous and angry, her relationship with Connor in tatters, she decides to escape her penthouse prison. Sylvie quits her job as Connor's editorial assistant and flees to an isolated cottage she recently inherited from her aunt. It's located in a remote area of the Catskill Mountains. She hopes to lick her wounds and mend her broken heart there.
