Danielle reads her daily meditation: "God answers prayers. Although God's answer is immediate, the particular way it unfolds may take time." Nothing epitomized her life better than this nugget of faith. In this raw memoir, Danielle Coulanges evinces plentiful faith, drive, and determination.
A gorgeous woman of Haitian descent living in New York City, Danielle has creative, sensible, loving, and charitable qualities. But the voice in her head keeps asking, "What's wrong with me?" Danielle picks through her childhood and past choices to uncover answers. Realizing that devaluing her self-worth has trapped her in a tumultuous business and love relationship she decides to walk away. Starting over will be a breeze, she thinks. Thirty-something, she just needs a new man, her own business, and lots of money to embark on a wonderful life.
Instead, she thrashes about in choppy and unfamiliar waters to survive. Her dreams continue to elude her. Juggling work, business, and dating pushes Danielle to exhaustion. Then unexpected, life-altering events force her to reexamine her values and beliefs. Through the process, she emerges with an unshakable faith, respect for herself, and attitudes that finally place her on the path that God intended for her all along.

The author has gone through the ups and downs of being single and learning to live a Christian life, all the while keeping her sense of humor. This is a fun, honest and at times, titillating ride of a fabulous and talented spirit, living in a fabulous body desiring an equally fabulous life. That life does find her, but only after traveling to many mountain tops and through even more valleys. She eventually gets out of Gods way and allows Him to bring her to where He wants her to be....with her prince! A great book!!!! A great read!!!! A great ride!!!
