Book 2 of the Egypt series
Tortured by guilt over her secret crime, Marva Garcia longs to confide in someone. But who?
Tortured by guilt over her secret crime, Marva Garcia longs to confide in someone. But who? Her former teacher-turned-surrogate – mother is about to marry the detective who, Marva believes, suspects her of murdering her father. June, her younger sister and the only person who knows what happened, insists they keep it a secret because she doesn’t want Marva thrown into prison. Jason, Marva’s friend since childhood, would be a good confidant, but Marva knows he has a romantic interest in her and she is too ashamed to tell him she was sexually abused by her father.
Feeling increasingly hopeless, Marva sees suicide as her only option. But before she can carry out her carefully-laid plans, something terrible happens. Something that blows her dark secret wide open.
Set in the beautiful twin-island nation of Trinidad and Tobago, In The Wilderness features lush, tropical scenery and enchanting culture. The gut-wrenching plot is sure to captivate the hearts of readers of women’s fiction everywhere.
