"I got up, went over to the window and looked out on the Toronto night. Christmas lights twinkled on Eglinton Avenue. The street looked exactly as it had for the past few weeks, but my world had changed beyond recognition.
Twisting the rings on my left hand, I studied my reflection in the glass. I saw a green-eyed blonde, hair artfully disarranged. Businesswoman, mother, a wife for nearly twenty years. A woman so stupid she didn't know her husband had been sleeping around. I swallowed back the bile that was rising in my throat."
Frantic Jude tosses down Tommy's belongings and disappears, pursued by her own demons. Or are they real? Pat is left to juggle slender clues as she first tries to find Jude and then must bargain with Seaton's wealthy family, who are reluctant to take the boy.
Flitting around the perimeters is the theme of international refugees. One of Pat's employees has Somalian connections. Pat encounters Sister Celia, who runs Safe Harbor to accommodate the refugees with shelter and legal help for their cases. Not only are they strangers in a strange land, but they may carry dangerous secrets from their previous lives. The sister seems a godsend, but other figures are stalking Pat as she tries to find a safe harbor for herself and the boy.Read more ›
Safe Harbor is a quick, suspenseful read with a hint of romance, perfect for a lazy day on the couch. Rosemary McCracken weaves an interesting and original tale of international intrigue and I'm looking forward to her next book.
