Finding Solace by Barbara Speak
Sadie Warren is a walking contradiction. The confidence she wears on the outside is only to cover the scars that are imbedded on her soul. Coming out of an abusive relationship where she was stripped of her security and confidence, she chooses to bury it under every man she gives her body to. After one intoxicated night that she will never remember in its entirety, everything begins to change. Being seen more for her positive attributes and less for her faults, Sadie arises from the dark and into a place she feels safe. But with that comes a chain of events that blur the lines of everything she thought she needed and everything she’s beginning to want. Will fear keep her from the one thing she believes she desires most or will fate take a turn unexpectedly and change everything?
Please don’t turn around. It will be easier for me to say what I need to say. Do you remember all the times you felt jealous when you shouldn’t have? Don’t answer. Do you remember all the times you felt more than you knew you should? Don’t answer. I feel all those things too. I hate feeling them too. I don’t want anything to happen between us that we are not ready for. All it will do is tear us apart. I love what we have, but I hate feeling like a dirty secret.
:I have a mad passion for books. It could be considered an addiction by some. After the responsibilities of work, being a mother and a wife are fulfilled each day, I escape in a book. I never really thought of myself as a writer before. My true passion was as a reader. One day an idea came to me and I could not stop after that first thought. I hope you all will enjoy the journey that took me through this book. If all goes well, and you enjoy it, I have plenty more of ideas to go from her.
