When Casey Renee Gardner, an aspiring actress, moves to New York City to live with her sister Candice and attend film school, her plans are disrupted after she learns of Candice’s cocaine habit. She now has to take on the responsibility of caring for her nieces. She finds solace in August Mitchell – a restaurateur who charms her – and they begin a relationship. But their romance comes to a quick halt when his wife Terren appears seemingly out of nowhere and makes it clear that she is not giving up her husband without a fight.
August is ten years Casey’s senior and uses his life experiences to take advantage of her young, naïve mind. Even after Casey is approached by Terren and told the details of their marriage, August is still able to manipulate Casey into believing he is leaving his wife and the mother of his children. Casey’s ignorance to the realities of dating a married man leads her into a drama-filled relationship that exposes her to physical, mental, and emotional abuse. Casey’s strong Christian faith helps her to make the decision to leave August. But will Casey escape their twisted love affair before she is dragged deeper into the abyss of lies, sex, and tragedy?
Shireal Renee keeps it totally real in this remarkable testimony of deliverance, from adultery, self-hate, depression, and physical, and mental abuse. This story evokes emotions that will have you laughing, crying, upset and rooting for your favorite characters. But more than that it will show you the true power of God’s mercy and His grace, and how he will deliver you from any situation you find yourself lost in. All you have to do is ask.
