The City Wife (The Isle of Burtonshire Saga Book 1)
R. M. Carpus
A crushing betrayal. A transcendent bond. Three thousand miles to the Isle. A displaced mother and daughter embark on a quest for refuge in this absorbing women’s sci-fi family saga for fans of slow-burn suspense and page-turning domestic drama.
My mother loved the city, and it loved her. Until the Turn. Until leaving became our only hope of survival. She’s slipping away more each day. I can feel it. The tide threatens to take me with her, but I’d be lying if I said I’d rather be anywhere else—with Florence is where I belong.
Now uprooted and on the run, we have to choose: surrender to a new beginning and leave our delicate past behind, or salvage the remains and try to find our way back.
Either way, I just want to go home.
But if home really is where the heart is, what happens when you lose heart?
