When is a good time to leave an abusive marriage?
How is the safest way to exit?
Kate Ross finds there is never a good time for a safe escape.
And once she does achieve a separation, it only intensifies her husband’s rage and subjects her and her daughter to even more unpredictable attacks. Kate is left constantly second-guessing her decisions and in the untenable position of looking over her shoulder while trying to move forward.
A new job, a new boss, and a new co-worker only add to the drama that Kate faces as she finds herself trapped in a season between a past full of peril and a seemingly unobtainable future of peace.
Meade sprinkles her narrative with some tense action scenes—e.g., a threatening, late-night phone call from Al that causes Kate to flee her apartment in terror—that will keep readers on edge…A page-turning story of a woman’s struggle to overcome abuse and make a new path forward.
