Treva Scott has survived an unusual upbringing and is ready to put the bad memories behind her. In order to succeed she perseveres through prayer.

Feeling that she's overcome the demons of her past, Treva's next step is to move from the realm of employee to business owner.  If all goes as she hopes, she'll soon receive another gift she longs for.

Brian Chin has been able to see the real woman beneath the shroud of artificial needs Treva depended on. Believing her to be his soul-mate he has dedicated himself to praying for their future together and believes that there's nothing that can take them backwards.

When current circumstances become reminiscent of her past, Treva is forced to answer her own hard question--CAN I LIVE WITHOUT HIM?
