Beyond the Quiet

BQ100Beyond the Quiet, a novel about a middle-aged woman who learns to live after her husband dies, has some of the most contentious reviews on Amazon.

Most say they didn’t like the sex scenes while others said the character was bi-polar. Another said I was the bi-polar one. One reader questioned my writing ability.

Yet it’s been praised by others, such as Coffee Time Romance. Even tho Beyond isn’t a typical romance with a Happily Ever After ending, they awarded the book The Coffee Time Reviewer’s Award.

So who’s right? I guess the old saying, “Beauty is in the eyes of the beholder,” applies also to reading.

The novel is available now on Kindle Select, which mean if you’re an Amazon Prime member, you may borrow it and read for FREE! Or watch for the FREE download dates at the end of December.

So read for yourself – and let me know what you think. I’m interested.

Beyond the Quiet:

After twenty-five years of marriage, Lisa Montgomery thinks her husband’s death is the worst that can happen. Then she receives a notice about his secret post office box.

Beyond the Quiet shares the story of one woman’s struggle though bitterness, loss, and betrayal. It’s the story of how a quiet, passionless widow becomes spirited enough to climb onto her lover’s shoulders for a piggyback ride in the nude.
