Description
"Be careful what you pray for" is an old adage, but third grade teacher Maya Richards comes to discover that it's more than just a cliché. Maya has been with her soul mate, Kenneth Green, for more than ten years. She never doubted that he would one day ask for her hand in marriage, but on the eve of their anniversary, their relationship ends abruptly, and she finds herself alone for the first time in thirteen years. Maya turns to her family and best friend to help deal with her heartbreak, but is left to heal on her own. Her parents have discovered a love for traveling, her sister is preparing to move across the country, and her best friend is busy tending to her husband and children. Instead of seeing this time as an opportunity to get closer to God, Maya begs God to send her a new mate. Impatient and desperate, she begins a relationship with gym teacher Lloyd Bradford, despite many warning signs. As she struggles to escape a dangerous situation, Maya learns that the relationship that matters most in life is the one that she has with Christ. As Maya finds the strength to break away from Lloyd's tight reigns, will she trust God and allow Him to restore peace in her life?
