A rendezvous with her ex-boyfriend after seven years. What harm could that do?
When Vanessa decides to leave her home in the Caribbean and reunite with her ex-boyfriend, Moses, who deserted her and their unborn child seven years earlier, she has no idea what fate awaits her in New York City, but she has her dreams. . . .
VANESSA JONES is a single mother who is determined to raise her son, ANDREW, who is diagnosed with Autism and give him every opportunity for the best life possible.
MOSES RICHARDSON is a young, successful entrepreneur with a chain of Caribbean restaurants and bakery in the Bronx, and no room in his life for a son with a disability.
But this is not the life this young couple envisioned when they first met seven years earlier, for Vanessa is a brilliant Jamaican student on her way to an Ivy League college and Moses is an ambitious nineteen-year-old Jamaican Cricketer aspiring to international Test Cricket fame. For Vanessa and Moses it is love of first sight. They plunge into a whirlwind romance which derails their plans and changes the course of their lives. Vanessa is pregnant and Moses disappears from her life.
Seven silent years later, while she is living at home with the disdain of her mother and the challenges of raising Andrew, Moses suddenly reaches out to claim Vanessa and his son. Can she trust the man who deserted her and their unborn child for seven years? Throwing caution to the wind, Vanessa leaves her parents’ home to reunite with Moses. Is she resting on an empty promise from a man who has deceived her before?
Follow Vanessa on her journey. See her struggles. Feel her pain. Experience with her the emotional impact of her reunion with Moses, and his rejection of their autistic son. Can prayer, faith, and God’s Holy Word sustain her as she meets the challenges that await her, and the act of revenge that shatters her world? Ravaged by circumstances, is there any space left for joy in her life?
