When she was twelve years old, they took her childhood and made her a wife.
When she was thirty-four, she crawled to her freedom. In Faithful, Tennessee she found refuge, safety, and family.
Esther Howard spent the next two years clawing and scratching through her nightmares to take her life back.
For those two years, he was there – a quiet, solid presence that never failed her—even when she pushed him away.
HE MADE HIS UNEASY PEACE WITH WHAT HE HAD.
John Valentine’s life had been little bits of heaven and huge chunks of hell. Now he focused on his sons and the land and tried hard to curb the need to be more to a woman who did not want more of him.
Until the day he discovered that she did.
THE LEADER WOULD RECLAIM WHAT BELONGED TO HIM.
Eli Babylon had led the Brotherhood of The Father. He was the rightful Leader, and The Wife was his. He had earned her, and he would have her.
The reckoning was coming.
I live in Tampa with my kids, grandkids, dogs, various other livestock, and way more books than is strictly healthy.
Humor & heart.
Grown up stories for grown up people. This is what I write. There’s also food, music, dogs, the occasional geek reference, and quite possibly an inappropriate joke. There will likely be dead bodies as well. Three random facts about me:
1. I was bitten by a shark when I was 14.
2. I have read War and Peace. (When I get to the afterlife, I am demanding that week of my life back. Sorry, Tolstoy.)
3. It is my sincere belief that any situation can be improved by eating some cheese.
My life philosophy is guard your inner peace and read dirty kissing books.
