Briefly Borrowed (Paperback)
Few tears are shed when Molly's stepfather loses his life in a car accident. Soon after his death, Molly's mother skips town in the dead of night. Left without parents, Molly is sent to a rent-controlled unit in Sugar Ditch Alley, where she sleeps in a small bed shared with her grandmother. As an adult, the full ramifications of Molly's unhappy upbringing reveal themselves in the form of her behavior. Twisted affairs, blackmail, and murder do not keep Molly from chasing her dreams. She is not only evil, but also a master of disguise and queen of manipulation, and she has found her latest target. He is a necessary temptation, and she only wishes to be appreciated in the way he adores his wife. She never meant for their affair to turn out like this, but this is what happens when Molly decides to borrow someone else's life.
Months after her stepfather's untimely death, Molly's mother remarries. The man Molly is eager to call dad sexually abuses her. Although Molly's mother observes these inappropriate interactions, she turns a blind eye.
