Melody Babinski and her step-brother, Steve Ruppert, grow up in a poor environment. Their single mother is always out of the house due to her gambling habit. This is a story of Melody Babinski who is a big dreamer. She wants to be wealthy, fast and big. She follows her friend’s successful endeavor, and she marries wealthy husbands, but fails miserably, because of her self-indulgence, extravagance, and her personality defect--OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder). She is a hoarder of beautiful and expensive things, but mostly unnecessary items. Unfortunately, she loses her three husbands and wealth, as well. Despite the help and advices of her friend, brother and a newly found sister, she remains stubborn. She refuses to seek medical help, and persists doing her wasteful habit. Fortuitously, she finally finds her dream: wealth. Unfortunately, she pays a huge price for her success. She almost dies twice. She barely escapes from a burning building, and also drowns in the midst of a hurricane, but is saves by an inexplicable phenomenon she claims as a miracle. The story has suspense, action, intrigue, and most importantly, lessons to be learned.
