Barbara is Living in fear of her husband.
Grey has just lost his job.
These two characters are both from different lives, both down on their luck. But about to face some great big changes.
Gloria Withers is a very wealthy lady who through no selfishness offers a life line to Grey. She is also the Grandmother of Barbara.
It is when Grey and Barbara's lives suddenly end up at the same place this book really gets going.
A brilliant but very emotional read, at one point or maybe two, I actually had tears in my eye's.
I loved the way this book was written, it was very easy to read, easy to follow. plenty of ups and down's.
This book is only around 180 pages, so was also a pretty quick read. And really show's how with courage, and a whole lot of luck, life really can turn around. When you think there is nothing left for you, things change, and change for the better.
Barbara lives in constant fear of her husband. She finally summons the courage to leave with their young daughter, Allie, but dreads the moment her husband learns of their escape. In his desire to control them and bend them to his will, he will leave no stone unturned to punish them--especially Barbara. Grey’s future seems bleak, especially the day he is fired, but everything begins to turn around the moment he absently sinks down on a bench occupied by wealthy Gloria Withers. Gloria sees something in him that no one else bothers to notice and, within moments, a friendship is sparked that will withstand many trials. When Barbara makes good her escape and arrives on the doorstep of her grandmother, Gloria, whom she hasn't seen for years, Barbara is greeted instead by Grey. It doesn't take long for a different kind of spark to fly as Barbara takes up residence in the Withers mansion. When Grey falls inexorably in love with not only Barbara, but also her daughter Allie, he vows to do everything he can to protect them from her husband who is out for revenge.
