Two patients, a man and a woman, face brain surgery. Though they are

For Bartholomew Gray, who possesses a deep love for beauty despite,

reassuring. But for attractive Julie Carr, the outlook isn't as bright.
Surgery may mean blindness and certainly years of post-operative care.
Julie has hitherto found strength for the ordeal in her love of fiancé,
Carter Blake. Carter, however, hasn't the same strength. [TA]
