Sequel to Jaice's Dilemma, depicting a young girl's struggle with tradition. Accordingly, throughout her early years Jaice tried hard to allay the old tradition stating that boys were better than girls who were brainless, and costly liabilities. Her parents were ambivalent about the tradition and wanted to give her a chance at a better outlook in live. However, at the slightest provocation or childhood error, Jaice was reminded of fulfilling the old prophecy. She was indeed held at a higher standard than all the males she encountered. As she grew older the traumatized girl knew in her heart that she can prove to the world that she had more creative abilities than merely catering to the male species that caused her all the tumultuous problems she experienced. Her tremendous strength, resiliency, and gumption gained through disappointments, physical and emotional abuse, mixed messages, embarrassment, estrangement, malicious threats, abandonment, tragedy and many other obstacles equipped her to conquer the deadly poisonous thorns, and capture The Elusive Rose embedded within.
