At dawn on a sweltering summer day scrabbling sounds alerted Jeanne of the intruder downstairs. The pull chain rattled against the light bulb in the kitchen. Instantly a sliver of yellow light raced up the stairs and into her bedroom. Someone was moving about inside the house, and had even been bold enough to turn on a light. It wasn’t the first time she’d awakened to the sounds of this intruder.

Thank you so much for sharing this tug-at-your-heart novel.
Sounds promising! After going through abandonment and abuse, it’s difficult finding forgiveness in our hearts, isn’t it? Would love to read this book soon.
Been a while I picked up a suspense/thriller. I used to thrive on them as a youngster. Thanks for the recommendation Corinne.
