|The stunning prequel to Somebody's Knocking at My Door from Essence and Blackboard bestselling author Francis Ray. Previously published as The Turning Point, this powerful story is about a woman searching for a new beginning. Desperate to escape her abusive marriage, Lilly Crawford files for divorce, then slips away from her small east Texas hometown with little more than the clothes on her back. With broken dreams and countless regrets, she points her twelve-year-old car east, hoping to find a new beginning. But when her car breaks down on a back road in Louisiana, Lilly is forced to seek help and finds unexpected employment in the wealthy Wakefield home--a powerful southern family who takes her in as one of their own. Lilly even finds an unexpected love with Adam, the Wakefield son and head of the family. But then Lilly's ex-husband resurfaces, bringing with him a past that threatens to destroy her new found life.|
From the Publisher:
Fleeing an abusive marriage, Lilly Crawford escapes her small east Texas hometown in her ancient car, hoping to build a new life for herself, but when her car breaks down in rural Louisiana, Lilly takes a job caring for Adam Wakefield, a bitter, reclusive, and depressed former neurosurgeon who had lost his eyesight in a brutal carjacking. Originally published as The Turning Point. Reader's Guide included. Reprint.
Desperate to escape her abusive marriage, Lilly Crawford files for divorce, then slips away from her small east Texas hometown with little more than the clothes on her back. She points her twelve-year-old car east, hoping to find a new beginning. When her car breaks down in Louisiana, Lilly finds unexpected employment as the caregiver for a wealthy neurosurgeon named Adam Wakefield, who lost his sight in a recent carjacking. At first, this handsome, brooding man reminds her too much of the angry husband she left behind and she reminds him of how far he has fallen from the self-assured man he once was. But as the two spend long days together, an unexpected bond develops---one that will be deeply tested. For Lilly must confront her violent husband before she can ever hope to move on and truly discover a second chance at life and love.
This stunning story is gripping and unforgettable tale told with Francis Ray's trademark emotion and passion.
