Is Love Enough?
Lauren St. James
Lori McCall has a very predictable existence. Her once happy 22-year marriage has lost its luster and now is anything but exciting. Juggling a career and family has become a thankless job. Each day she is lonelier than
the one before without much to look forward to. As the years pass her by, she realizes that she has not only lost the connection with her husband, Sal, but more importantly, she has lost herself. With her children nearing the age
of independence, Lori knows that soon she will have to make a decisionabout her future.
When an old flame, Jesse, contacts Lori, her emotions begin to spiral out of control. What does he want from her after all these years? Would her life have been different had she not betrayed him? Had Jesse ever really forgiven her? More importantly, does he hold the keys to a better, more fulfi lling life for her? And if so, can she walk away from the only life she
knows, a life that had once been so perfect for her?
With her thoughts consumed by the past, she continues to go through the motions in the present but can only dream about the future. A new future, full of promise.
