"Life isn't all hearts and flowers. It's pain and suffering too. It's dirty little secrets buried deep in the muck and mire where the grubs and worms feed. Secrets I unbury."

Is it possible to go home again? Rachel Cord must decide if she can face old demons, old prejudices, or lose Wendy Devlin, the love of her life, to an ultimatum: "I’ll marry you anywhere, but I’m meeting your family first. That’s my deal. Remember, what doesn’t kill us makes us stronger.”
It's that killing part that worries me, Rachel thought.
“She’s been shot. Someone shot her.”
