Brandy’s ex-husband was mentally, emotionally, and occasionally physically, abusive. She went through a very dark time when they split up, and 10 years later has not fully dealt with their marriage and breakup.
One good thing came from their marriage – April. April recently left for college, and the time alone has allowed Brandy’s mind to go to her past, resulting in another struggle with depression.
This story (which, so far, has no title) is about Brandy finally facing the demons in her life, freeing herself from them, and giving herself permission to be happy again. It’s also about her helping April work through the damage done by her parents’ failed marriage and her own painful experiences with her father. This story is also about Scott, the man that Brandy falls in love with, who has a failed marriage and issues of his own.
This is the story of a perfect, realistic love. It’s about two people who truly love each other, flaws and all. They acknowledge and accept each other’s flaws. They push each other. They tell each other what they need to hear, not always what they want to hear. They are always there for each other. They both mess up. They are both human. They each have problems. Through it all, they remain passionate lovers and best friends.
