All her life she had yearned to roam, to search, to find and now it was her turn to fly free… As 21 Annabelle Driscoll was acknowledged beauty, but it was her sister Audrey – four years older – who had the spine and spirit. She had talent – a lot of talent – as a photographer; she had the restless urge of a born wanderer.
Inevitably it was Annabelle who was the first to marry, leaving Audrey to wonder if life were passing her by. Sometimes she would dream of a man life her father, someone with adventure in his soul and exotic places in his heart. The men she met in California were dull, worldly. Even in New York, they failed to spark her. Only when she took shop for Europe aboard the Mauretania did she begin to mingle with her own kind. Only when she boarded the Orient Express did she realize she was beginning a journey that would take her farther than she had ever dreamed possible… Deep into China, Tibet, the magic of the Orient and later North Africa and Europe. Her life was never to be the same again.
A novel about hope, and change, and daring to be free…
Everyone in Washington knows Madeleine and Jack Hunter. Maddy is an award-winning TV anchorwoman, and Jack is the head of her network and an adviser to the President on media issues. To the world, theirs is a storybook marriage. But behind the locked doors of their home, the woman the nation idolizes lives in degradation and fear. The cruelty she experiences as Jack’s hands leaves no bruises, no scars, only the wounds of humiliation and isolation.
Maddy’s journey to healing begins when the President’s wife offers her the opportunity to join her Commission on Violence against Women, where she hears chilling stories from terrified wives and girlfriends that sound eerily familiar. And there she meets Bill Alexander, a distinguished diplomat who also works on the commission. Bill suspects that something is terribly wrong in Maddy’s marriage and, as she takes the first steps towards freedom, a remarkable series of events begin to unfold. A devastating tragedy occurs which forces Maddy to realize just how much she has lost – her confidence, her trust, her self-respect. As her journey comes to a close, she finds strength she never knew she had… and a gift which will change her life forever.
