Facing Our Skeletons was written to support the belief that being in a
committed relationship with another person can bring great joy or sorrow.
Inevitably, the question emerges: What am I willing to compromise to keep
this relationship? The goal of the book is to support men and women in
developing healthier relationships through introspection, whether they are
single or married.
Facing Our Skeletons is a tale of Stella, a modern woman seeking fulfillment
through her relationships with men. Author Carmel S. Victor chronicles her
dealings with three men-Kevin, Michael, and Dev-and the troubles and
heartaches she finds with them as she seeks the perfect match. During these
trials, Stella comes into contact with other women who have their own
struggles to find a man who is faithful, respectful, and considerate of them
as independent women. As time goes on, Stella discovers that the peace she
seeks cannot be found in the arms of another, but through healthy
relationships with God, her family, and those around her. This is a tale of
one woman's disappointments and how she turned them into triumphs.
