To the naked eye, Zolla Ramsey might appear to have it all. An exquisite home nestled in one of Chicago’s most affluent communities, a thriving family and marriage therapy practice, and family and friends that adore her. If that isn’t enough, she has a husband who adorns her with all the luxuries money can afford and makes it his priority to satiate her every sexual desire.
As perfect as Zolla’s life presents, one might inquire as to why Zolla is feeling uninspired, emotionally depleted, and depressed. Could the answer lay in the reality that home is actually an empty shell, veiled by materialism to compensate for her mounting marital issues and dwindling passion? Perhaps the answer lies in unresolved family secrets that continue to haunt her. Better yet, maybe it’s the intolerance she displays when confronted with that one particular issue, the one issue that has lead her to immediately terminate valued friendships.
For years, Zolla has been able to mask these issues welling beneath her flawless exterior. Until she finds herself confronted with a situation and his name is Attorney Maxwell Garrison. As she struggles with the distressing reality of having met her soul mate outside the realms of her marriage, this situation stirs up emotions that challenge Zolla to reexamine the scrutiny she has held others to.
Now that Pandora’s Box has blown wide open, Zolla is forced to stand in front of life’s mirror and starting at the cellular level, reconstruct her existence.
