Having lost her one true love, the mature but stunning Isabella marries the starchy but well-respected pediatrician Langley Morrison, hoping he will care for her and her young daughter, Desiree.
For years, things look perfect from the outside for the Morrison women, but cracks in the surface appear when Desiree, now a thirty-something, single but sassy professional, holds secrets that affect her relationships with her parents and with men. Armed with the dismal marriage prospect statistics for African American women, Desiree decides that she needs to help God out by embarking upon a dangerous online dating escapade.
Isabella wonders if her faith can withstand her own broken marriage, revelations from her daughter, and a devastating diagnosis. Desiree questions if God really will give her the desires of her heart. Through it all, the mother and daughter journey to find the strength to push beyond the pain of the past, into an uncertain future with an all-knowing God.
