About the book:

The story introduces readers to Derek, who-after he gets out of prison-regrets lost opportunities and the moments he wasn't there for his friends but determines to make a new life for himself and embrace the changes he's struggled to achieve. He is eager to continue his pursuit of a medical degree, but can he pursue his wasted dreams when his longtime love Deena has already put her life on hold for him and wants to move on? "Unseen Promise" takes a closer look at the decisions people make and the changes that push them in a new direction. Michele portrays the generous grace of God who has a plan for people's lives that can succeed despite human missteps. When Deena's and Derek's differing goals profoundly clash, each will be thrust along an irreversible passage.

Even if they do not know the influence their life has, each has a crucial role in fulfilling God's promise. Readers will learn to find hope in God and trust that He is ultimately in control even when life doesn't go the way they planned. A story of redemption and hope, "Unseen Promise" reveals God's divine goodness and the reassurance to be found in his strength.

Published by Tate Publishing and Enterprises, the book is available through bookstores nationwide, from the publisher at, or by visiting or

Michele received her master's degree in management of computer information systems from California State University-Sacramento.
