#SixSunday "Maybe his father was the reason their family was so deplorable” #NOONDAY #Excerpt

My Newest novel will be available this spring. So, I've been sharing little snippets of the prologue—six sentences at a time—until it publishes. If you’d like a brief look at the mini synopsis and last week’s six sentences, you can sample them through this link: Land of the Noonday Sun

We left you off last week with Walter wondering how his father could have worked after everything that had happened.

This week's six:

As Walter thought about his father, anger replaced his tears. “Typical,” he muttered in disgust, exhaling in the dark room. Maybe his father was the reason their family was so deplorable. No, he needed to stop blaming others and accept responsibility for his actions.

“Priscilla,” he heard his father’s peal of agony. “Priscilla, my God, no, please don’t do this to me!”

I hate to leave you here, but rules are rules. Want more? There is a sneak peek at Land of the Noonday Sun at the end of She Belongs to Me, available now through Amazon and AmazonPrime.
