Sometimes, you have to confront your past in order to face your future. Not all of us are strong enough to do that. This is Jezebel’s story.
After the death of her fiancé, Jeffrey, Jezzy goes home to be in the comfort of her family. She meets Matty, the family vet, who challenges her at every turn. They bicker constantly, but when mom devises a plan for Matty to give Jezzy horse back riding lessons, there is no turning back! Through the course of Jezzy’s short time at home, she is able to let her guard down and you see the real Jezebel… not who Jezzy thinks she is. Jezzy’s perception of herself is so skewed due to Jeffrey’s treatment of her that she doesn’t know how to be anything other than the weak and worthless woman he always said she was. What others don’t know is that Jezzy is harboring a secret and the guilt of that secret is eating her alive. The only person to see through all of this… Matty. Can he convince Jezzy to let go of her past so that she can start living the life she deserves?
This story definitely pulls at your heart strings and then completely rips them out. While reading this story, I had to remind myself that I am not who people think I am… I’m my own person and everyone deserves to be happy. It reminds you that life is short! Live, Laugh, Love!
