About this title

Synopsis:

From the cradle to a certain grave, Maura Connelly had been a subject In The Houses of Men. Like car crashes, bad choices seemed to chain her to the past, and mortgage her to future abuses. What events would derail the inevitable trainwreck? Who would offer comfort on the trip we call Life, and enable Maura to break a binding lease In The Houses of Men?.

From the Back Cover:

Dick was standing by the bed, filing his nails with an emery board and wearing white boxer shorts decorated with red hearts.

'It's the ADC! Get into the closet!' He looked up, lips parted, eyes steely.


'The what?! I don't want to. OW! You're stepping on my toe!' I pushed him. He didn't budge; smiled, conscious of the new power he wielded.


The banging at the front door continued.


'Please,' I begged tearfully, `I need the money for the children!'


He stopped filing and as an afterthought, shrugged and stepped into the closet, staring straight ahead as I rolled the door closed past his nose.

I heard myself prattling hysterically to Mrs. DuChamp, who rubbed her sore knuckles, as she entered, at last. She was a short, stolid frizzy-haired woman. She peered around her, taking everything in.

'We had a fire last night--fire engines here--I don't--and didn't hear and we went back to bed and--' I shrieked, tying my robe in the living room, 'we overslept--the children and I!' She nodded curtly, taking a seat on the couch.

'So the last time you saw your husband. . . ' The notebook was out; the questions began. I lied and I lied and I lied, partially and completely. I lied like a rug. She put her notebook away. 'It might work,' I thought. She stood up to leave. My senses were still reeling. Suddenly, without a hint, she paraded into the bedroom area.
'Where are you going?!,' I clamored, running after her. Mrs. DuChamp stood like a beagle on-point in the center of the bedroom; my heart pounded so loudly in my ears, I knew she had to hear it. It would be nothing for Dick to roll open the closet. (I knew he would still be filing his nails.)
