A father torn apart A son forever scarred Two men trying to connect when their only link to one another has been tragically severed...
Ethan Harrington's innocence was lost seven years ago when his mother took her own life. Forced to grow up in a hurry, he quickly learns to build a wall around his heart, vowing to never let it be hurt again. Left alone with his controlling and abusive father in an isolated farmhouse, Ethan struggles to live among the shattered remains of a family that was never functional to begin with.
A kindhearted doctor, a beautiful girl, and a caring nanny all love him in different ways, but Ethan, now sixteen and still ravaged by his mother's suicide, turns to what he has seen his father take comfort in time and time again - thus giving rise to an inner demon that will not turn him loose.
A story of hope - even in the darkest of times, this is a coming-of-age novel that depicts the sometimes difficult, and oftentimes complex, relationship experienced between fathers and sons when tragedy strikes.
BIOGRAPHY I am an author of edgy, women's fiction & mystery novels. My books are filled with emotion, drama, and angst. If you don't mind a few intimate scenes and a sprinkling of profanity here and there, then my books are for you. I create stories that deal with very personal and social issues: Alcoholism, mental illness, adultery, and domestic abuse as well as some other taboo subjects. My women are not weak, and my men are not always strong. You will find that my characters are not perfect - they are far from it, actually, because even heroes have a chink or two in their armor. It's what makes them human, and I find that fascinating.
On a personal note, I am a wife to my soulmate, mother of two boys (1 who loves me unconditionally, & 1 who loves me only when we're not in public), professional hamster wrangler, and firm believer that Krazy Glue fixes everything.
