Trish Ryan was the quintessential successful thirtysomething woman -- she had a career as an attorney, a nice car, and a succession of men clamoring for her affection. But despite all her accomplishments, the things by which she defined her life continually left her disappointed, especially when it came to dating. Like the heroines of chick-lit novels and Sex and the City, she couldn't escape her bad luck with men: men who cheated, who left her, who made her a lesser version of herself. After years of trying everything out there to make love work -- new age philosophy, feminist empowerment, myriad of self-help programs -- she finally, hesitantly, decided to give God a try. This is Ryan's story of how her search for the right guy turned into the search for the right God, and (spoiler alert!) how she ended up with the happily-ever-after ending.
Trish Ryan lives in Boston, Massachusetts. Visit her online at trishryanonline.blogspot.com and trishryanonline.com.

"This is one riveting story. Like many people, I can identify with what it feels like to look in all the wrong places -- and then realize down the road that God has been writing a story that is so much bigger and better than I could have ever imagined. It's not often that someone can make me read into the wee hours -- and then laugh so hard that I wake my poor husband up from a sound sleep."
