The story opens with novelist Paul Sheldon surviving a wintery car crash and awakening to find he’s been “rescued” by Wilkes, a nurse and self-proclaimed No. 1 fan of his romance books.

While he convalesces, she reads a draft of his latest book and becomes enraged when she finds that her favorite character, Misery Chastain, has been killed off.
