At 24 years old, Erica Pattinson never saw herself as a victim.
Trapped in an abusive marriage where she is beaten, demeaned and suffers every type of torment imaginable, she tries to find an out—an escape.
When Thomas (Tom) Clarke rolls into town and discovers that his best friend’s wife is in the hospital after a terrible “fall”, he knows that something is amiss.
The two never expected for Erica’s husband to refuse her freedom or the fact that hero and survivor would develop more than a simple friendship in this thrilling tale of love and courage.
