One Past Midnight
Since the death of his mother Akio Hirase has lived the stereotypical storybook life, complete with a cruel step-mother and equally cruel stepsisters. While he tries to adjust to life as a servant for his new family, he finds himself questioning God's faithfulness as he endures torment and humiliation.
Ayanna Vaughn is an heiress who's got her whole life together and a road already carved in gold. Million-dollar house, brand-name clothes, high-class attitude. Even though she gives the impression that her life is amazing, what no one knows is that her perfect world has already fallen apart and that she's the only one trying to hold it together.
When Ayanna comes to Japan, she finds herself thrown into Akio's less than sophisticated life. Through her, Akio discovers a love for fashion, while Ayanna learns to let God pick up where she lets go. For the most part, life starts looking up for the them.
However, after years of separation, Akio and Ayanna encounter each other again under vastly different circumstances. With shattered dreams and broken lives, can they learn to trust the Lord and each other? Or will the scars of the past push them farther apart?
