The Art Of Listening
Artemis Jones was, in a word, awkward. She has never quite fit in with the world around her. I suppose it really isn't her fault, though. Her Father raised her by himself and isolated her from the rest of the world. He was a very well-known Professor at Harvard, smart, handsome, kind to his students, to everyone, except Artemis.
He homeschooled Artemis until she was old enough to attend college. His lessons were hard and sometimes cruel, but outside of teaching, he never spoke a word to her. She worked at the college library, attended her classes, and kept to herself. Until one day, she met Brad. He was handsome and a smooth talker, and she fell for his tricks. He saw her as the perfect target, young, pretty, and naive. After three years of abuse, and the death of her father, Artemis knows she needs to get out of there, she needs a fresh start.
She finds a job opening in Tobinville, Louisiana for a librarian and takes the job. She packs a bag, empties her bank account and leaves without a word.
When she reaches the town, things start getting very strange, but Artemis has never felt more at home.
