A Margin of Hope
A senior at the prestigious St. Francis Academy, Vanessa Jones just has to meet the handsome and popular Moses "Hurricane" Richardson, a star cricket player in Jamaica. The nineteen-year-old man has a reputation for being fast-both on and off the field. They fall in love, but when Vanessa discovers she's pregnant, their lives change forever. With his cricket-playing career at a high, Moses wants nothing to do with a baby. Vanessa's strong faith prevents her from having an abortion.
Seven years later, as a single mother in Florida, Vanessa struggles to make ends meet while raising six-year-old Andrew, who suffers from autism. Moses, now the owner of a successful Caribbean restaurant and bakery in New York, yearns to have a relationship with the son he's never met. But Vanessa is not prepared for the emotional impact of their reunion and the tension she experiences as she is torn between her passion for Moses and her commitment to another man.
Can love, faith, and hope sustain her as she faces Moses's rejection of their autistic son, the wrath of the other woman in Moses's life, and the act of revenge that shatters their world?
