“Empty Shell is about what happens when one woman gives up, one man gives in, and another steps in to manipulate lives and hearts. It's about what's left when the love runs out, when death changes everything, and when a woman who leaves faith behind finds lives ruined because of her choices and reactions.” - D. Donovan, eBook Reviewer, Midwest Book Reviews A pair of pink, silk underwear… The quiet world of Melody and Jack Dickinson is about to be turned upside down.
