Sunset : Karen has the life she’s always wanted…a loving husband, a growing family, and a career that both suits and challenges. Then, with a few words, a text sends that life crashing down around her.
At first confused, then frustrated, and finally devastated, Joe doesn’t know what to do or where to look in order to help his wife and save his family. Turns out, he doesn’t have to look far.
You’ve seen the McCabes rally around one another, supporting and protecting, but you’ve never seen them like this. When the one who’s always been there for them is threatened, nothing will keep the McCabes from showing her what family means, what family does.
But will it be enough?
“You should go. This is going to get ugly. Ow!” She writhed with the contraction that wanted to turn her inside out.
“Go? I’m not going anywhere. I’m staying right here beside you. Is there anything I can do?”
He was desperate to help. The emotional pain on his face was real, as real as her physical pain. She’d never meant to hurt him, had never wanted to do anything that could hurt him.
“No, there’s nothing you can do.” Karen twisted again as the pain shot from her belly to every nerve ending in her body. “Wait outside. Let me get through this. You can come back when it’s over.”
“When it’s over? But I want to be here. Why would I leave? I love you. I love our family. We’re doing this together.”
“You’re not doing anything except bugging me,” Karen snapped. Maybe if she hurt him enough, he’d leave. She simply didn’t see how she’d get through it with him in the room.
“I’m sorry, baby, I know. I’m sorry. Should I stand by the window for now? Give you some space?”
“Leave, Joe, just leave. Please.”
“But we did the classes, we read the books, we—”
Joe wiped a cloth on her forehead. She wanted to bat it away but couldn’t move.
“Go,” she rasped.”
