A strong young woman who will graduate school and make a name for herself. She’s self-assured enough to recognize what she has to offer others and sensitive enough to work well with others for mutual success. As a classmate of Justin’s at university, she sees in him the talent he’ll use to succeed and the weakness that is his vulnerability.
She may survive her interaction with Justin, but she will never forget the time they shared, and the lasting effect it had on her life.
Middle aged academic, comfortable, confident, and dating, Justin, a 21 year-old student. He knows what he’s getting into and questions if this is the right thing to do. A sense of responsibility and right from wrong wrestles with the knowledge that the ages 55 and 21 don’t always add up to a hundred percent.
He is a careful man who has a sense of loneliness about himself. He faces the world knowing the right thing to do, and may be blinded by his own ethics.
A fiercely independent woman with an understanding of what it takes to succeed in world of subpar men. She steers her husband away from the pitfalls she knows lay in his path to success, while she guides her sons into men who can build careers and be as strong as she is.
She is aware, and willing to make sacrifices for her children and her husband; all she asks for in return is love and obedience.
A tenacious reporter with a desire for a career-making story. If the story fits the story she’s already written in her head, then her career will be guaranteed. If not, then it’s back to writing reviews of the local little league’s awards dinner.
She has tried time and again to succeed, and knows she has what it takes, all she needs is one good interview; and she thinks she’s found it.
