An Everlasting Love
As a child, when Taylor Baxter looked in the mirror, she didn’t see a princess or anything precious. She saw a skinny, tight-eyed girl with thick, nappy hair and skin the color of dried, hard mud. A reject and a misfit. It didn’t matter what mirror she looked into; she saw the same broken image—a painful darkness staring back at her. Abandoned by her birth father and a victim of sexual abuse, Taylor is convinced that real love doesn’t exist… at least not for her. How do you find love when you don’t know who love is? Proverbs teaches us to guard our hearts, for out of it flows the issues of life. Taylor shut her damaged heart down and buried it under layers of bitterness, anger, and distrust. Will the love of a good man be enough to break through her concrete soul?
