An excerpt: “That night when Rob returned from work, his anger had dissipated. Neither of them referred to his outburst—he didn’t apologize; she didn’t confront him. It never came up again, though Ana would never forget what he had called her and the violence that broke the peace of their home. Life continued as if the outburst had never happened, yet it would never be the same.” Read the rest of the free sample chapter: Perilous Voyage
