 Claire Massey was living the high life or so she thought, parties&celebrations whenever and where ever she wanted. She would have new treasures laid at her feet in a matter of seconds. She lived this way for many, many years. She thought she had her life under control, but little did she know that her husband had a HUGE secret, that would change her life forever. Her life as she knows it comes to a complete hault, everything has changed. Will she ever get back to what really matters?

 We soon after many bends in the road, learn whats more important. God and family has always been what keeps me grounded, nothing else really matters other than those two things. Claire will be forced to look at her life and she will have to make some hard decisions as soon as she does.
