Shona Jackson, a twenty something tomboy, ran, hitchhiked and staggered as far as she could to escape from Louisiana and the neighborhood where her dark secret had been exposed.
In Alabama, Shona hears about the kind Jeffrey Ellis, wealthy co-owner of Ellis and Bruce Machinery, and heads there in search of work, peace and a hope to become to invisible. Here, she strikes up a bond with Cuban, a well-mannered man also on a similar journey but who is repeatedly racially abused by the workforce and by Larry Bruce himself, Jeffrey Ellis’s brutal business partner.
Just when Shona starts to settle, she is introduced to Chloe, Larry Bruce’s beautiful daughter and is forced to once again to face the demons she had hoped would remain buried in her harrowing past with tragic consequences for those involved.
Will Shona be in a position to run again?
A compelling and heart-breaking story of secret trysts too dangerous to confess to at a time of cruel, unforgiving and relentless intolerance to difference.
“Captivating from the first page, a bittersweet story about love crossing boundaries”
“A moving yet disturbing story… You won’t put this book down!”
