The Widow Road Is… Excruciatingly painful, a daily adventure into the unknown. As exciting as going to the dentist and finding you’ve a second set of wisdom teeth. THEN… As the days come and go and go and come things get… What do they get? Easier? Calmer? No. They get weird. Becoming a one instead of half a twosome is not what you bargained for? You find yourself really alone, a lot? You need a cheerleader. You need to hear you are going to live again. You need hope. With all the courage of a kitten coming out of the box for the first time, and seeing the world in a new light, Trina found widowhood wasn’t all that bad. Oh there will be bad. Its life there will always be bad and mad and sad. That’s exactly when Trina will buck you up with, “you got this.”
When your mother names you after your father’s affair, you might wish you were living someone else’s life. For Samantha Hart, growing up on a farm in rural Pennsylvania had been no childhood idyll but rather a violent, surreal nightmare. A twisted vision of pastoral life part Faulkner part Dante. At fourteen years old, she ran away in search of her father, a character she only knew as Wild Bill. Discovering he wasn’t the hero she dreamt he’d be, she was on her own. Arriving in Los Angeles at the peak of LA’s decadence where money, drugs, and good times flowed, she floated through a strange new world of champagne-soaked parties, high-stakes backgammon tournaments, and a whirlwind of international escapades flogging nude photographs. When a wealthy playboy mistakes her Pittsburgh accent for being British, it begins a spiral of white lies leading Sam to question everything she thought she knew about herself and who she could be.
