9780312321635: Trouble Don't Last Always: A Novel

Desperate to escape her abusive marriage, Lilly Crawford files for divorce, then slips away from her small east Texas hometown with little more than the clothes on her back. She points her twelve-year-old car east, hoping to find a new beginning. When her car breaks down in Louisiana, Lilly finds unexpected employment as the caregiver for a wealthy neurosurgeon named Adam Wakefield, who lost his sight in a recent carjacking. At first, this handsome, brooding man reminds her too much of the angry husband she left behind and she reminds him of how far he has fallen from the self-assured man he once was. But as the two spend long days together, an unexpected bond develops---one that will be deeply tested. For Lilly must confront her violent husband before she can ever hope to move on and truly discover a second chance at life and love.

This stunning story is gripping and unforgettable tale told with Francis Ray's trademark emotion and passion.

From the Author:

I just received some great news. THE TURNING POINT later retitled TROUBLE DON'T LAST ALWAYS will be reissued in November 2011. TROUBLE DON'T LAST ALWAYS was my first foray into mainstream fiction. The book was also a result of my own medical scare with my vision, but that's another story. During the research on domestic abuse I was saddened and astounded to learn that domestic violence touched 3 in 10 woman. Hearing some of the women's stories left me in tears and so thankful that I had a warm, loving husband. I wanted to do something for the women who weren't so fortunate and established The Turning Point Legal Fund to help women of domestic violence restructure their lives. The fund is overseen by The Family Place, a women's shelter in Dallas. So, every time you purchase a Francis Ray book, you help a woman in need!
