ALL THAT REMAINS
ALL THAT REMAINS (4) by Janice Kay Johnson: Pregnant and running from her abusive boyfriend, Wren Fraser gives birth in an Arkansas farmhouse during the flood of the century with only Sheriff Alec Harper for help. First unable to believe that everything will turn out all right with the two of them stranded with her new baby, Wren soon learns just how resourceful she and Alec can be. And when the floodwaters recede and the three are rescued, Alec’s gallantry continues while he tries to track down Wren’s abusive ex, who disappeared the day after she left him. Johnson’s story is fraught with emotional tension. Wren’s situation comes across as being quite realistic, as do her feelings about the abuse that caused her to run.
