Claire had blocked any thoughts of him a lifetime ago, convincing herself that she felt nothing for him…not love, not hate, nothing at all…and she’d survived without him. But now that he’d be seeing their daughter, reminders of his rejection returned with a vengeance. Why had he turned on her, never coming to get her like he’d promised, never contacting her at all? She figured that with all the resources available to one of society’s privileged few, he could have easily found her, but when she never heard from him, she understood one thing; he wasn’t looking for her because she was the last thing he wanted. Still, in her heart of hearts, she knew that there had to be more to the story, and with the help of her daughter, she’d search until she found the truth.
About the Author
As an instructor for thirty years, Roberta taught hundreds of students how to write essays, reports, and research papers. However, her creative juices really began to flow after she left work. Once in the privacy of her own home, she could use her imagination to fill legal tablets with stories and ideas for novels. Some of her stories came from conversations with students, colleagues, sisters, and friends. The stories that tugged at her heart, the stories that she would never forget were those of women who’d suffered from domestic abuse and violence. Little did she know, but her first novel would be a fictional account of one such survivor.
