Emily lives in an idyllic foster
home in the English countryside. Her only problem is Nanny’s adult son, Ronnie,
and his sexual molestation of her. His treatment conditions her for similar
scenarios later in life. However, at an early age, she gets to know the Lord
intimately. Abuse shadows Emily’s life as she travels with her mother and
siblings to Nigeria. She meets her lawyer father for the first time, survives a
rough boarding school experience, and in university, she befriends Bayo. He
turns out to be a cruel piece of work. In spite of this, she makes a quick exit
returning to London- with him. Bad boyfriends and several years later, Emily
battles a barrage of trials and setbacks in the US, including a failed
marriage, with three children in tow. Homelessness follows, and Emily’s
insurmountable troubles reach a tipping point when she flees a murderous
relationship. Still, her treasure lies in a passionate, adventurous faith that
only flourishes the more grief she suffers. She knows that God’s got her back.
Although clueless of the underlying reasons for the chaos, she’s fast getting
to the bottom of it.
