About the Book

Her first mistake was marrying the wrong man.

Belinda comes of age in Hattiesburg, Mississippi in 1970. Her life is simple until Ricky Morrow blows into town. Ricky takes a shine to Belinda and wastes no time putting his claim on her. But when her father gets wind of their budding romance he makes it clear Ricky Morrow isn’t good enough for his only daughter.

Then fate steps in. At just seventeen years old, Belinda suddenly finds herself orphaned and alone. Ricky proposes marriage and without a second thought she agrees. The newlyweds move north to Chicago and in record time Belinda becomes a mother. Before long she begins to doubt the choices she’s made. But it’s too late. Ricky would rather see her dead than let her leave. Scared for her life, Belinda hunkers down in this marriage of convenience as the babies and fists keep coming.
