Book Synopsis/Summary
The death of Nyla’s husband comes as a shock to everyone except Nyla. What’s shocking to Nyla is her inability to grieve his death like a typical loving wife should grieve. But Nyla isn’t a typical loving wife. She’s a woman in desperate need to breathe. The oxygen in her life has long gone, and the astonishing thing she feels from her husband’s death is relief, not grief.

Even more astonishing is the rare and unexpected friendship which develops between Nyla and her dead husband’s mistress. However, Nyla isn’t aware her new best friend is a former mistress. And as their friendship deepens into an unshakable bond, Nyla is forced to face secrets her husband took with him to his grave. This means she has to sift through mud to unravel the truth. A truth that’s better off dead.

Yet through it all, the one thing which makes Nyla violently breathless, is the exact same thing that causes her to finally breathe.

  1. The description of this book is absolutely tantalizing. So tantalizing in fact, that I had to hop on over to Amazon and take a sneak peak. I got two pages in and now I’m hooked! It’s now in my Kindle, waiting to be read. I have to admit I’m thinking of skipping over a few books in my queue to get to it sooner.

    Best wishes on the success of your debut novel Demetria! Thanks for sharing Quanie. 🙂
