By: Sophie Littlefield
Publisher: Gallery, Threshold, Pocket Books
This book begins with Ron standing on the Golden Gate Bridge ready to jump…if when he calls Maris she tells him to jump!
Maris Vacanti’s daughter, Calla, was found murdered by Ron’s son, Karl, who was her boyfriend. Maris marriage was falling apart, so with her life in shambles she walks away from her pampered life in the Bay area the day Ron calls her…With this phone call she has the power to exact revenge on the man whose son is responsible for her daughter’s death. What will her decision be?
This book is filled with hurt, loss, the physical and emotional damage done by mistakes of others. As Maris tries to put her daughter’s death in perspective and get her own life back on track she finds out some unsettling revelations about her husband, Jeff. On her journey to healing she ends up in the seedy side of Oakland far removed from her pampered life and is befriended by Petra, a young Czech girl with tattoos and a butch who is dealing with her own demons. The unlikely duo forms a bond that leads to forgiveness, acceptance and healing.
I highly recommend this book. It is truly inspirational.
