'Perli, what is it that you want?'
Closing her eyes, she sighed, 'I just want to be happy.'
At age 19, Perli Duo could have never imagined her life turning out like this; miserable, forced and threatened into a life commitment with a man she barely knew and definitely did not love. The seemingly cold and ruthless Jack Onel. After all, why would a 19 year old want such a lifetime commitment with such a man?
For Jack Onel, all he ever wanted was an escape- a distraction, from things he failed to control. That, he wanted badly even at the expense of hurting the one woman he claimed to love. But what was meant to be an escape, became an unbearable force that heated and melted away the ice barrier he had created in his heart, revealing the true man behind the cold character.
And through love, tears, smiles, hatred, betrayals, fights, misunderstandings, anger and temptations, they both- in their unique way, experience the love of God. Because although they were simply two messes trying to make a marriage, they were two messes that God had plans for.
