This series is centered on the personality of Katherine, so without a doubt she was the one I connected with and was my favorite to write about. She’s naïve, rather innocent, submissive but with hidden strength and courage she discovers inside herself when pushed a bit over the edge. She’s a woman who has many thoughts, ultimately in due time turning those thoughts into action; liberating herself from the confinements of her husband. There is a lot going on with Katherine and that’s what made this story so exciting to develop and write.
I’m a single woman in her thirties. Many of my friends are married and I’m what you would call a hopeless romantic. Katherine was a bit like I was when I was in college. When you’re 19 and meet the man you are going to marry, you think you’re set for life. That was Katherine’s plan and I also thought it was mine at one time. Part of it was because I believe this is what society wants us to think, and so Katherine’s journey into marriage unfolded into what she thought was expected of her. She was to be an obedient housewife who took care of her husband. In the meantime her husband wasn’t being fair to her, and was leaving her vulnerable. Katherine’s transformation became my inspiration.
I truly believe women hold up half the sky. Many women don’t have the courage to say what they truly feel or are held back by their husband or men in their life. Time and again I have heard women complain about how their husband is treating them or how a boyfriend wasn’t loyal. It’s not fair for us women to sit back and accept it as if we’re second class citizens. Katherine made this realization and she ran with it! That’s what makes Katherine such a great character to follow during this thrilling journey she embarks on and I encourage all women to read it.
