Renee Thomas wakes up one Monday morning longing for change. For years she’s been a faithful wife, supportive mother, and successful hotel executive, but recent events have taken her over the edge. ?After thirty-five years of marriage, she has learned that her husband, Jerome, fathered a child with another woman. Before Renee can fully accept what happened, Jerome hints that his 16-year-old love child wants to live with them. In addition to her troubles at home, a power struggle with a new executive threatens her job security, and a longtime friend confesses his undying love. Afraid she’s heading for a breakdown, Renee desperately struggles to get a handle on her life.?
On that same day, Jerome Thomas wakes up thanking God. Renee was his high school sweetheart, and though he’s given her plenty of reasons to end the marriage—bouts with alcohol, a long-term affair, and conceiving a child out of wedlock—she fought for their love. Knowing he doesn’t deserve Renee or the life God has given him, Jerome plans a special romantic weekend for his wife, unaware that his marriage is on the brink of divorce. ?As Renee and Jerome struggle through a turning point in their lives, an unfortunate accident ends the life of a loved one. Now faced with their toughest challenge, will Renee and Jerome give up on God and the life they built together, or will they firmly stand on God’s promises and trust in the plans He has for their future?
