No matter how hard she tried, Jenna couldn’t save them all.
Jenna was too involved with her clients—had been since day one at the agency. Having walked the horrid path of abuse in her marriage to Tom, it still played on her emotions causing self-doubt. Since her divorce, she vowed to help every abused woman and child she could. Each time Jenna had to attend the funeral of a client she felt like a failure. Refusing to give in to her feelings, she fought hard to start over and put the past behind her, even though she still experienced a silent agony of her own. Jenna had worked side by side with the local DA on many domestic violence cases. And on occasion, she’d had to testify regarding a client causing her life to be put in danger. But if she could save one woman from meeting their demise, it was worth it. Roger Hawthorn had been DA for many years, and hadn’t lost a case thus far. He’d earned the respect and support of fledgling attorneys as well. But a woman he knew had been placed in a penitentiary and held against her will. Not even Roger could get the judge to overturn the sentence. Working with Roger and helping abused clients had pushed Jenna out her comfort zone, making her have compassion for others when she reaches out to offer hope of seeing change. But will it be enough to help Jenna bury the past and finally find the man of her dreams?
