After being unexpectedly thrown into the millennium dating realm after the dissolution of her 13 year marriage, one woman soon learns that it will take more than beauty, intelligence, and a strong financial head to navigate safely through relational waters. Using a blend of text-messaging and poetry, Surface Dirty explores one woman's effort to re-discover her "Woman-ness" before settling on a life mate. It is a reflection of the power of agape love: a love that is unconditional and undeserved that supports her push to go beyond the superficial to the core of those elements that will ultimately edify her soul. In the end, it is the insights of some loving and decent men, the very gender that inflicted her pain, that help orchestrate her greatest growth. The wisdom shared is useful for men and women.
