forced to choose but has to understand the true meaning of all.
is a supernatural suspense tale that also has
romantic and fun, as well as sobering elements. It is the story of Lailah
Brooks, a newcomer to the town of Highland Hills who is excited about her
independence until she realizes that it comes with a price. She had believed
that she was escaping the overly strong influence of her mother but instead has
walked right into the perfect nightmare, and it all begins with a telephone ring
and calls for a church. Where would be the fright in this? Lailah soon
As she goes about discovering her new town, she meets neighbors, co-workers and
even her love interest, and finds out an interesting thing about them all. They
are Christians, a new breed of animal indeed for Lailah. Raised as the only
child of a bitter mother who is not only a non-believer but also one dead-set on
making certain that they never even cross paths with the like, Lailah is faced
with a strong decision, and it seems that she won’t be left alone to make it.
Living the long dreamed of life of a university professor, enlightening young
minds and feeling as if she is giving back, Lailah should be as happy as they
come. She has a fairy-tale romance with a wealthy, handsome, dream of a man who
thinks of her as his destiny. She has a growing respect and admiration for her
colleague, Darlene, and has found a strong personal admirer in her neighbor
across the hall. The fact that they all happen to be Christians is just
coincidence, or is it? The fact that her mother, the other half of her dynamic
duo, would strongly object is pushed quietly aside – for now.
As issues escalate and cause a rift in her relationships, all of them, Lailah
finds an odd and unexpected sense of comfort courtesy of her mother. Thus begins
her time of coming to terms with her past and also her glimpse into her future.
Outside forces play a major role in guiding, or even pushing when needed, Lailah
into the right direction. And it seems that they plan to win – at any and every
cost! But who will win, and will there be a loser? This, too, Lailah must
discover and she must do so on her own. Join her as she learns of faith, strong
religious beliefs, and one's ability to prevail against almost insurmountable
Compelling Christian, supernatural suspense tale that will inspire and uplift
while also evoking strong emotional reactions to the plight of young Lailah.
