( A Decade Of Abuse )
Everyone in Wheeler, New Mexico, thinks Joanna leads the perfect life: the quite contented housewife of a dashing deputy sheriff, raising a beautiful young daughter, Laurel. But Joanna’s reality is nothing like her façade. Behind closed doors, she lives in a constant fear of her husband. She’s been trapped for so long, escape seems impossible – until a stranger offers her help she needs to flee…
One the run, Joanna and Laurel stumble upon the small town of Morro, a charming and magical village that seems to exist out of time and place. There a farmer and his wife offer her sanctuary, and soon, between the comfort of her new home and blossom new friendships, Joanna’s soul begin to heal, easing the wounds of a decade abuse. But her past and her husband aren’t so easy to escape.
Unwilling to live in fear any longer, Joanna must send for a strength she never knew she had to fight back and forge a new life for her daughter and herself.
