Meet Melena Russell, a shy 18 year old young woman who has always stepped down and backed away from any type of serious relationship, except that of her love and devotion to God. Now meet Dylan Hart. He is the first guy in a long time to intrigue Melena since her unrequited feelings for Rick. Melena and Dylan begin something wonderful at a Christian Summer Camp and though the future looks bright for them, Cassandra, Melena’s younger sister, has other ideas.
Cassandra is selfish, angry, and spiteful, but most of all she is lost. Can Melena with God’s help break the barrier between them, and will her brother Nick ever recover from the accident that hurt him and killed his girlfriend?
The only real hope besides God for Melena and Dylan are their best friends Chad and April. April knows what Cassandra has done to Melena throughout the years, and with Chad’s help, they continually bring Dylan and Melena together.
LOVE THY SISTER, GUARD THY MAN by Ms. Mendoza is a wonderfully refreshing treat and glimpse into the life of a teenage Christian trying to find her way in the world. Though Melena’s life has its ups and downs, her faith in God is inspiring. Thank you Ms. Mendoza for bringing us Melena and all the wonderful and very real characters of LOVE THY SISTER, GUARD THY MAN.
