Susannah Chapman is finally free--after spending eight years in prison for a murder she didn't commit.
Susannah Chapman is finally free after spending eight years in prison for a murder she didn't commit.
The last eight years of Susannah Chapman's life had been a living nightmare. In the space of only a few months, she had lost her fiance, been framed for the murder of the man responsible for her fiance's death, and discovered she was pregnant with her fiance's baby, knowing the whole time that she would have to give her baby up for adoption. No one seemed to believe Susannah that she was innocent...that is, until a day eight years after the trial, when the assistant district attorney came to visit Susannah with the news that the man she had been convicted of killing may still be alive! Before she knows it, Susannah is free, and doesn't have a clue where to start. Her life is in shambles, her heart aches for the child she had to give up, and no one seems to want to give her a fresh start. Until the assistant district attorney, Jared Walker, offers to help her get on her feet.
Jared Walker feels horrible over having been partially responsible for sending an innocent woman to prison for the last eight years. He had become the assistant DA because he had wanted to make sure justice was done - but it wasn't in this case. So, to right the wrongs committed against Susannah, Jared is determined to help her anyway he can. He helps her get a job, find an apartment, and get on with her life. But as he spends more time with Susannah, he realizes what a wonderful person she is, despite all that has happened to her, and he wonders if he could possibly have a chance with the woman who was falsely imprisoned because of his boss's mistakes.
The book is an involving story. It's mostly story. There is romance,of course. It dosn't go into detail with the sex part.
