Aaliyah Barnwell in her tumultuous quest for love finds exactly what she doesn’t need, "a married man!" Benjamin Braithwait is charming, articulate and very much married. Their worlds collide when a trip to the bookstore sends them down the aisle of curiosity, self-discovery and infidelity. "There’s nothing a married man can do for me," Aaliyah says adamantly, while struggling with her desires and her spirituality in a way that is open and honest. It was not her purpose to have an affair. So, how did it happen? How did she fall in love? Wasn’t God enough? "Love always comes with sacrifices." Would she have to give up the one thing she wants most? Without coming across as preachy, this story touches on the theme of adultery, divorce, remarriage and the struggles that a multi-faceted woman (who in the midst of all this turmoil, rededicates her life to God) suffers. This refreshing story allows "the other woman" to tell what she feels, what she thinks, while fighting to keep the one thing she desires within her grasp, love.
