Robin Bartlett said, "Yes!" Will she say, "I do," when the big day arrives? From his cultured handsome looks to his vast fortune, Antonio "Tony" Viscolli is every red-blooded American girl's dream match. It doesn't hurt that he completely loves and adores Robin with all his heart and soul from practically the moment they first meet. Robin comes from a blistering past, struggling and fighting for the survival of herself and her two younger half-sisters in a cold, cruel world. By the time Tony thaws her heart, she has known hunger, poverty, violence, and want. Robin never had a chance to dream of a white wedding gown or a prince charming. Instead, her dreams were nightmares dark and clouded with fear and desperation. For months, Tony courted the blond beauty with the sapphire eyes. He teased Robin and pursued her. He showered with attention, respect, and charm. He covered her in diamonds, sapphires, and rubies. Tony satisfied every heart's desire. Finally, Robin came to understand God's love for her as imitated by the unconditional love Tony freely offered. Then, on a sunny Florida beach, Tony proposed and Robin eagerly said "Yes!" Back in bitter cold Boston, doubts about becoming a billionaire's bride begin to crowd out her hopes for happiness. Robin worked for tips until just a few months before Tony proposed on that sunny stretch of sand. In fact, she waited his table less than half a year earlier. Having no experience facing these challenges, Robin struggles to cope feeling the pressures of relocating; of unreliable transportation; of the never-ending details of the shower, the ceremony, the reception, the honeymoon; of worries that her sisters will smoothly transition along with her; of changing her name; all while dealing with her father's very serious legal problems. As the date draws inexorably near and the pressure mounts, Robin begins to grasp the scale of her fiancé's vast material wealth and holdings, the responsibilities of the virtual empire he commands. She witnesses his generosity when he takes on a young protégé straight from the tough South Boston streets. Ultimately, Robin questions whether she is truly the girl of Tony's dreams. Is she the woman God has made for him? In taking her on as a wife, would she act as helpmeet or poison apple? In truly loving Tony, would it be better to bind herself to him for all eternity or return his freedom? When her nightmares return in full force, they remind Robin of an even deeper and more terrifying prospect. Will she give in to her insecurities and cancel Boston's "Royal Wedding" for good? Or, with God's guidance, will Tony sacrifice everything to prove to his beloved Robin her true worth?

It takes more than love to sustain a fulfilling and peaceful marriage. Life is not all roses and violets. The commitment to a vision that is bigger than both of you is one of the greatest sustainer of marriages. When my husband came home one day in 2002 with a gun in his hand to shoot our sons to death, he then turned the gun on himself. Little did I know what a painful journey awaited me from that day onward. By writing this book, God in his unfailing love and daily mercies kept me going to share my journey of healing, forgiveness, and restoration. May it help you find strength, courage, and assurance of His love. God shows no favouritism; the comfort and healing I received from Him is available for you, too. Marriage is an institution created by God, and it’s a glorious blessing to mankind. It’s only when we walk the path without Him or ignore Him that our limited minds and shallow emotions fail us. My story is a testimony of survival by God’s grace. The comfort and healing I received from my Lord was so amazing, I needed to share it with the world so we can all know that no matter how unfair life may seem, there is a God who cares and sees all that we go through.
