It's been five years since Sylvia Kramer abandoned the turmoil of her former life in Toronto and found refuge in Newfoundland. During her attempt to make a fresh start, Sylvia experienced a brutal home assault, suffered the loss of her newfound soul mate, and developed a disquieting suspicion about a friend's newborn baby. Now, having finally settled into a peaceful and accepting existence on Old Broad Road, her calm is shattered when she's informed of an ominous scheme instigated by her desperate ex—husband. Sylvia's life is further disrupted when her neighbour Jamie invites a disgraced lawyer from Boston to stay with him On The Rock.

Author Bio

Phyllis L Humby is a seasoned writer who tells it like it is. She'd already given up her day job when she indulged her passion for writing. Having always worked with the public, Phyllis amassed a catalogue of character traits which she cast in short stories published in international anthologies and journals. Not only does Phyllis enjoy writing fiction, preferably with a twist, but her nearly twenty years in the retail lingerie forum provided plenty of fodder for her memoir Hazards of the Trade. Life experiences balance the fictional connotation of her writing. There are no fairytale endings. Phyllis lives in Lambton Shores near London, Ontario.
