She is a successful photographer in TX. She loves spending time with her family and friends. She enjoys movies, scrapbooking, photography and her mother-daughter trips.

Maggie Carmichael was a young woman, although raised in a loving home, never felt loved. She appeared happy on the outside but she had a void in her life: the need for unconditional love. She still believed in fairytales. In her quest for Prince Charming, Maggie finds herself in many unsettling and terrifying situations; each one making her feel less deserving of the love she desperately needs. Maggie decides she will settle for whatever love she can get, from whomever will give it.

Finally, Maggie finds a man to love her. She loves him unconditionally and tries desperately to make him love her the same. Maggie’s desperation for his love allows him convince her to make the biggest mistake of her life. Maggie is devastated by what she has done. It changes her life forever and she loses her desire to dream. She struggles with every aspect of her life. There are constant reminders that tears away at her heart until she gives up on love completely.

Doing what she can to survive, Maggie focuses on her career and anything else to keep her mind away from what has torn her apart. She prays for forgiveness but wonders if she can be forgiven. Maggie finally experiences God’s grace. She feels His forgiveness and real freedom for the first time in years. She finally has peace. Maggie has all she thinks she wants: a successful career, a church she loves and great friends. Her life is going great until a fateful trip to the mall reminds her of the biggest mistake of her life.
