Second Chances – A Woman's Story of Survival
A woman accepts a drink from a charming man at a cocktail party -- and terror replaces the tedium of her once ordinary life.
The drugged champagne is a one-way ticket across an international landscape to an isolated life controlled and scripted by her aloof, enigmatic, but surprisingly benevolent, captor.
In SECOND CHANCES, Lindsay Talbot confronts shocking truths, heart-breaking loss, and the shattering confession of the man she loves.
About Rita M Boehm (The Villages, Florida Author)
Rita M. Boehm was born and raised in New York on the south shore of eastern Long Island and became a voracious reader at a young age. After too many years facing a daily, mind-numbing commute on the Long Island Expressway, a career move provided an opportunity for Rita and her husband to live in Colorado and explore the Rocky Mountain West. With another career move in 2000, she traded sunny skies and mountain vistas for suburban Maryland, just a few miles from one of her favorite places, Washington D.C. Retirement in 2014 allowed Rita the opportunity to reawaken the creative muse left slumbering for all too many years of poring over legal documents. She published her first book, Second Chances, a few months later.
In 2016 Rita moved from Maryland to central Florida with her husband, their lovable orange-tabby cat, and her dressage horse.
Rita is past President of the Writers League of The Villages, an active writers group that is also responsible for running the highly successful Central Florida Book & Author Expo. Her novel "Missing on Maple Street", was judged a finalist in the 2019 Royal Palms Literary Award Contest sponsored by the Florida Writers Association. Her children's picture book, "Bluebirds in the Garden" took home top honors as Best Children's Book in the same contest. She floated across the stage after accepting that award! "Bluebirds in the Garden" allowed Rita to combine her love of photography, nature, and writing to create a children's picture book with a simple story about the bluebirds who chose her garden as the place to raise a family.
When she isn't working on her latest novel, or curling up to read a good book, Rita enjoys photography, gardening, and most especially, riding her horse, Kosi.
