As readers journey through the Christian romance novel, they will find shared commonalities between themselves and the main characters, Maxine and William. Just like many people today, Maxine struggles with her weight, low self-esteem, and lack of confidence. William, an ex-inmate who is a power player in the world of business, also struggles with materialism, which he uses to mask his deeper issue of low self-worth.
