As a designer of upscale restaurants, 30-year-old Bailey Ann Edgeworth can go into an empty space and immediately see what it would take to transform it into a beautiful and memorable spot. She learns transforming her own life is another proposition entirely. It can get messy and it doesnt always go according to a neat blueprint. Baileys brother Henry and his best friend Griffin are stars in the restaurant field. They are known as the Color Wheel Boys because of their renowned Buckhead restaurants Vert, Blanc and Noir. Bailey is determined to chart her own course; to not be forever known as Hanks daughter, Henrys sister, or whatever she is to Griffin. Baileys dreams propel her to New York where her vision garners accolades and fame. After a perceived rejection by Griffin, she rushes into an impetuous marriage with an enigmatic English chef. Their combined charisma and desire lift them to the top of the culinary world. Just when she seems on the verge of having it all, a shocking betrayal throws Baileys world into chaos. She begins a spectacular downfall complete with secretive drug use, shady associates, and her career in turmoil. Just what are the secret ingredients to transforming food, a dilapidated building, and ones own life into something extraordinary? Before Anyone Else examines the complicated relationship between love and ambition and explores how our earliest relationships and experience shape us into who we ultimately become.
