Michelle now has to learn how to heal from the physical and emotional pain that encompasses her daily life, pain inflicted by a man she once thought she knew and loved.
Through it all, Michelle learns valuable lessons on how to survive some of the darkest of days she has ever experienced. And while she might not ever discover the secret of life, she does discover someone’s purpose in this crazy, chaotic world: hers.
