Escaping The Pastby Julianna Stephens
Lou's early years
Lou Smith would be the first to admit that she's the luckiest woman on the face of the earth. She lives on a farm where manners matter and the farm hands all come to eat when the dinner bell rings. Life is comfortable - so comfortable that it seems almost too easy. But Lou comes with a past, one that she will be forced to face, or die trying.
Lou's early years were never easy. She lived a life of poverty and depravity, never staying in one place for very long. She grows up quickly when she suddenly becomes a mother and is thrust into the world alone. She resolves to try to un-live the life that her mother lived. And it seems to be easy to avoid sex, love, and danger. It's easy until she meets Brody Wester, that is.
Brody is a handsome, successful surgeon who is way too busy for family. In fact, it's been twelve years since he's been home. He's forced to face some demons from his own past when Lou calls him home to attend his dying mother. But his mother is not the only person who holds his interest.
From the outside, Lou Smith looks like an average twenty-seven year old woman. She has a successful career, a family and a daughter. But she has a secret. Most women do have secrets but Lou's secret is more powerful than most. And it's coming to find her.
