The Calm Before the Storm by Tamaria Soana
The last two years of Erica Bloom’s life have been spent looking over her shoulder. Sawyer Marsh promised the day she filed for divorce and left him, that if he couldn't have her no one would. Even though Sawyer hasn’t contacted her in two years she’s still feared for her life. She remembers all too well the nightmare their marriage was and what it felt to be on the receiving end of his wrath.
The news of Sawyer’s engagement allows Erica to finally let her guard down and enjoy her new life and budding relationship with Brock Maxwell.
While away relaxing at Brock’s vacation home on the Willow Lake, the past comes back to haunt her. Were the past few years just the calm before the storm?
Warning: some violence
Note from the Author:
I wrote this short story to raise awareness about Domestic Abuse. Statistics shows that every nine seconds in the United States a woman is assaulted or beaten by her partner. In October 100% of the proceed will go to my local woman shelter, then 50% for the life of the book.
