Beaufort Betrayal by Linda Heavner Gerald
The mental abuse, which Tory suffers from Jack, is so skillfully carried out that she remains in denial until it escalates to violence. Lies and deceit become so common in her life that she finds it impossible to distinguish the truth. Each day presents challenges to her ability to triumph over the evil web of lies which surround her. At that point, she is able to protect herself by imploring the strength that had always been there to guide her. Her love for sailing surprises her by being the very act that saves her life. The setting of Beaufort, NC is the perfect coastal town for this drama of a woman who is faced with hardships which would break most. To endure betrayal at the hands of the very person whom she should have been able to trust creates a woman of strength and real beauty.
