Jacob Seely Jacobson stares out the window at his beautiful daughter, Casey, limping painfully to her car. The car accident that had killed—and was caused by—her abusive husband had severely injured Casey’s right leg. Because she had been driving, a possible indictment for negligent homicide hangs over her head. And Jacob, a widower at forty-nine, is wrestling with his own demons. Though weak, Casey wants to help her friend Tiffany, whose husband, Russ Eden, sounds as abusive as Nick had been. Casey’s wildly improbable, almost comedic plan to “disable Russ Eden emotionally” worries Casey’s father. Determined to enjoy life, Casey returns to her profession of photography and is soon caught up in an enigmatic relationship with Syrus Tucker, the new graphics director for a large advertising agency. Like flint and steel, the relationship produces sparks that seem to be moving Casey ever closer to an unknown danger. In A Tear of Love, you will find mystery, suspense, spousal betrayal, and unexpected love. Popular author Alene Roberts has created memorable characters—people you will come to deeply care for and from whom you will learn valuable lessons about life.
