She's independent, successful and fulfilled in her spiritual walk. But bank president Charmayne Ellis, in the novel "Farther Than I Meant to Go, Longer Than I Meant to Stay," (Warner Books, $12.99), by Tiffany Warren is also overweight, close to 40 and wondering if she will ever be as successful in her personal life.
She's never gotten much praise or caring from her ever-critical mother and sister. And her friends are more into matchmaking than being truly supportive.
So it seems her prayers are answered when hardworking, saved and just-too-fine Travis Moon asks Charmayne to marry him. Or were they?
Charmayne soon finds the only thing her new husband has to share is one bad-news secret after another.
Now, with her reputation and career destroyed and her life at rock bottom, her faith will be tested as never before. Her challenge will be to face her own willful heart-and find the courage to finally put herself in God's hands and discover where her real blessings lie.
