The main character longs for true love and marriage and she will do just about anything to find it. While some of her choices may seem a bit extreme, she has total faith in the love story God is trying to write with her and for her. Here is a bit of the conversation the character is having at the beginning of the story:
"I can write this story for you, if you're willing to give me the pen."
"Everything I've accomplished in my like, I've done myself. Me. Alone. Why should I trust you now?"
"You haven't asked me for help. Of course, you can keep doing things your way. If that's working for you."
Sound familiar? If you tend to be a control freak (like me and the character in this book), you've probably had a very similar conversation with God before. It's hard to relinquish control and trust that God is writing our story and does a much better job of it, if we just get out of the way! After reading this book, I have a great picture of this and hopefully will keep getting out of the way in the future!
