Marcel Emerson makes a stunning literary debut with a gripping tale of passion, pain and the promise of love.
Jennifer Peele and Dontae Erickson have just entered the prestigious world of Georgetown University’s elite law school. A chance meeting brings them together and they realize they have a lot more in common than their mysterious green eyes. Personal tragedies have made them kindred spirits, both seeking to fill the empty space left by deaths of their mothers. Jennifer, once a rising songstress, re-ignites her passion for singing but ends up facing the flames of an abusive relationship with one of her band members. She struggles to maintain her dignity, her grades and her failing relationship, in spite of its fatal flaws. Dontae falls under the spell of a charming law student, Darrel, but their budding relationship soon withers under the weight of a personal tragedy—the death of Darrel’s father. Darrel makes a quick exit and seems to vanish off the face of the earth, only to resurface later, with a pregnant wife in tow. Will Dontae accept Darrel’s offer of continuing their relationship, in spite of the fact that he belongs to someone else, or will Dontae move on and look for love in the arms of another?
