The trouble with trust is once it's broken, it changes who you are and who you will become—forever.
Michael Jarrid is the youngest with three older brothers, none of whom his dad feels quite lived up to his expectations. But there is still hope with Mike who is headed for college in a few short months. That is until his pregnant ex-girlfriend accuses him of fathering her child. Mike swears it isn't true, but his parents believe her. Why? The trust is shattered.
Feeling betrayed, Mike needs someone to believe in him. Lacey is a nurse with a young son, who comes to his rescue when he takes a spill on his motorcycle in front of her house. She offers a nonjudgmental, listening ear. One thing leads to another. Neither of them meant for it to happen, it just did…
He falls head over heels into this new relationship, then she dumps him. He's scuttled his plans for college, alienated himself from his parents and finds himself alone and wondering—is anything about his life salvageable?
About Jean Baxter (Green Bay, Wisconsin Author)
Jean Baxter started writing with her friends in middle school, passing the same story back and forth, each one adding to it. Getting a short story published in a magazine a little later gave her encouragement to try something more challenging.
She wrote a book. That got put on hold when she found herself single, again, with two kids to support. She became a nurse and white-knuckled it through those teen years, fraught with angst and drama. Convinced young adult was the area she wanted to concentrate on, she dug out the first manuscript and updated it. She joined a writer's group where she was encouraged to send it out. Salvageable is her debut novel and a sequel is in the works.
Jean has four grandchildren, (more fodder for her stories), a couple of cats and a yard full of flowers. She loves to travel, walk, bike and golf. She’s a member of Wisconsin Writers Association and Green Bay Area Writers Guild.
