Mave wants the life back in her marriage. Dareece just wants a life.
Could they be the answer to each other’s dream?
Mave Robertson, a recent empty nester, wants the fire back in her marriage, but her husband, Jerry, remains aloof. Is he having an affair? A midlife crisis? When a neighbor suggests she “get a life,” Mave accepts the challenge and volunteers at an inner-city teen ministry where she is thrown into a culture of drugs, gangs, and unwed teen moms. She soon discovers someone she can help, but might he also be the cure for both her stale marriage and her crumbling relationship with her father?
Dareece Jackson, a teen from the projects, wants something in Mave’s purse…and he’ll stop at nothing to get it.
A poignant story of middle age, surprising friendships, and unexpected places
