About the Book
In The Beginning, Jessica’s marriage to handsome hotelier Julian Bothwell reads like a romance novel. However, Jessica’s marital bliss soon begins to unravel as she realizes she has married not only into money, but mayhem, madness, and perhaps murder as well. Desperate to save her marriage and the life she has built for her young son, Jessica becomes the keeper of things she dare not say out loud, not even to her closest confidante and friend or her therapist. As she frantically careens from one stopgap measure to another, Jessica finds herself turning to a coping mechanism that, to her dismay, proves not only futile but also perilous. A combination of romance, intense suspense, and an examination of the darker side of human nature, Tap Dancing on Quicksand is not a book for the fainthearted. It examines issues that women have faced for centuries – loving too much, spousal and child abuse, alcoholism and drug addiction, family secrets, and dysfunction. It is a book about a woman for whom being in love becomes synonymous with being in terror. Tap Dancing on Quicksand will keep you guessing until the last page.
