The Indelible Heart by Marianne K. Martin


The long-awaited sequel to Love in the Balance


The Indelible Heart reintroduces Sage and Deanne, and Kasey and Connie, from the best selling Love in the Balance.

Ten years ago, Charlie Crawford shot dead his two lesbian neighbors. Sharon Davis was their avenging angel, the woman who fought to win justice for her murdered friends. But justice didn’t ease the pain. Beer did, though. And Sharon’s love for the bottle cost her the love of her partner Laura. Laura’s departure was the cue for the descent into depression that finally forced Sharon to rebuild her shattered life. Now the past is back with a vengeance. Charlie Crawford is terminally ill and seeking early release on compassionate grounds. Sharon has to fight for justice all over again. When Laura comes back to town, Sharon’s history threatens to overwhelm her. Hate nearly destroyed her ten years before. Has Sharon learned enough about love and friendship since then to keep herself whole this time?
