It was a devastating experience but she was determined to pull through alongside her husband who she believed would always be there for her, but unknown to her, Michael has a dark secret that would ruin all they shared.

As she drove south; broke, lonely, and heartbroken, she made a resolve to bounce back at all costs.
Other characters in the book include Sheila, Crystal, Zoe, Gail, Lillian, Greg Sault, Clayton Mercer etc.
It would be hard for anyone to read Astoria Rumors without fighting the urge to cry. It is a book that was written in a way that makes the events appear so real yet highly captivating. It is a book you wouldn’t want to drop until you get to the end.
