As a young girl growing up in Jamaica, Marilyn struggles through school without basic necessities and confronts the subtle racism her society inflicts on darker-skinned black people. When she matures and falls in love with Edward, a popular musician, she believes that contentment is finally within her grasp. But marriage to Edward doesn't prove to be the fairy tale she envisioned. Their initial bliss is followed by years of pain, hardship, and sacrifice.
Rather than letting herself become overwhelmed by her circumstances, Marilyn interprets these experiences as tests of faith-tests that will help her forge a deeper connection with her own soul. Her willingness to see opportunity in the face of disappointment allows her to lead a life defined not by fear and desperation, but promise and hope.
