After suffering a work injury, he's forced to allow Penny to take a job. Will two women help her live and laugh again? A powerful exploration of abuse and the question of divorce.
When Trent is injured in a welding accident and his paycheck stops, he has no choice but to finally allow Penny to take a job cleaning houses. Here she meets two women from very different worlds who will teach her to live and laugh again, and lend her their backbones just long enough for her to find her own.
Verdict: Holmes (Crossing Oceans) creates complex, fully realized characters, deftly portraying the nuances of an abusive relationship in a way that will help readers understand why battered women dont immediately leave their abusers.
