She met Mr. Jason Granger, a wealthy businessman and a frequent patron. Jason was also determined to have Maddie for this wife. Five short years later, Maddie divorced her husband and married the also newly divorce Jason. They were very much in love. For the first time Maddie could dream about how wonderful and exciting her life and the lives of her children were going to be. She was married to the man of her dreams whom she loved with all her being. However, life does not always live up to one's expectations.
