Being in a committed relationship with another person can bring great joy or sorrow. Inevitably, the question emerges: What am I willing to compromise to keep this relationship?
Facing Our Skeletons is a tale of Stella, a modern woman seeking fulfillment through her relationships with men. Author Carmel S. Victor chronicles her dealings with three men – Kevin, Michael, and Dev – and the troubles and heartaches she finds with them as she seeks the perfect match. During these trials, Stella comes into contact with other women who have their own struggles to find a man who is faithful, respectful, and considerate of them as independent women. As time goes on, Stella discovers that the peace she seeks cannot be found in the arms of another, but through healthy relationships with God, her family, and those around her. This is a tale of one woman’s disappointments and how she turned them into triumphs.
