And YOUR story needs to express that too.
If your character doesn't have a longing and goal, then it is difficult for the reader to relate to her and stick with her to the end of the book.

Mission Jack Synopsis:
Jenny is queen of safety and predictability. Her life is controlled by fear. But the guy she falls in love with over the Internet represents anything but.
Jack is in over his head trying to take care of his orphaned, preteen niece, and might be more than a little insane to be falling for a woman online, especially when a predictable "perfect" woman from his church is offering to be everything he could ever need.
Jenny and her best friend become convinced that Jack isn't the awesome guy he seems like, and that he's an Internet stalker. On a mission to prove they are right, they go on a road trip to Nashville, TN to call him out.
"Mission: Jack" goes exactly opposite of what they'd planned, especially when the real stalker shows up.
Jack must learn that perfection isn't always so perfect, and Jenny must learn that safety isn't measured by locks on the doors, but that trusting God is the only true way to peace.
