FICTION / General


"The Wrong Brother" takes us on a roller—coaster ride that leaves us dizzy by the time it glides to a breathless stop. Gripping danger and all—consuming love combine in its pages to produce a satisfying conclusion. This book combines mystery, suspense, drama and a touch of romance that leads the main character (a young university scholar) into a dangerous relationship with an abusive husband and towards a "life and death" decision for herself and her children. It is written with intelligence, insight, and a deep knowledge of the harmful psychological forces that control the players.
