The first 11 chapters of BETRAYED are now in the form of a FREE book excerpt. By clicking HERE you can read the heart-wrenching experience Laurel Murphy endured when she woke up tied and gagged in a strange room.
While this is fiction, many parts of the book were inspired by true events that happened in Chicago in the 1950s. As I wrote I asked myself how Laurel could contain the resentment for the people who did this to her. Would she want revenge? What twists and turns would her life take? Would she ever find peace, happiness and success?
The real person endured so much trauma and heartbreak, but still did build a life for herself. Maybe not the life contained in this book, but it could have happened.
I hope you enjoy reading the excerpt.
