“When love throws feisty Grad student and single mom off her game, she takes on the most challenging fight of her life,
breaking the shackles of abuse to open her heart to the man of her dreams.”
Twenty-four year old McKenzie Batiste has it all: confidence, ambition, intelligence, and beauty. Honorary president of the “Superwoman” club, this feisty single mom defines the term “Strong Black Woman.” Despite the hard blows life has dealt her, she’s risen above a tumultuous childhood, a lonely and painful adulthood to raise a son on her own while she attends grad school and works full time. From the outside looking in, it appears as if she has it all together . . . What could this strong black woman possibly need? Despite all outward appearances, which McKenzie meticulously crafts, she yearns for a love she can believe in and trust.
It’s during her Master’s program that she finally finds Christian Malveaux, her soul mate. But as fate would have it, Christian is married. He’s a good guy who married for the wrong reasons--bound by expectation and obligation. Christian slowly wins McKenzie’s heart over during lengthy discussions about mushy classic R&B lyrics and intimate moments doing the cha-cha. They laugh, open up, become close and fall in love.
Christian shows McKenzie that she can overcome the hurt, betrayal and disappoint- ments of life and trust in love, trust in a man, and trust in herself. But will she be able to accept his support, understanding, and love and allow him to be for her . . . A Soft Place to Fall.
