Descrizione

In association withThe Edge Books.
 

His gaze seemed made for her alone, the curve of his mouth fashioned solely to bring her enjoyment, and for a moment in time, she melted into it, lost to the war and the frayed edges of her life.

-----

Caught up in an adulterous love affair, Charlotte Lake can only blame herself for how miserable it's become. After all, she chose to become the "other woman" and with that choice, betrayed everything holy about marriage.

When her secret threatens to emerge, however, she finds her only salvation in the kind, gentle hands of sailor, Nashville Jaeger. If she'll trust him, he knows a way out.

But the biggest thing he brings into her life is perhaps the greatest gift of all – forgiveness – and with it, a piece of his heart.

A story of God's willingness to heal any heart by best-selling author, SUZANNE D. WILLIAMS.

In Association with The Edge Books

What is THE EDGE?

THE EDGE is a conviction. It’s where we stand to save the lost. It’s stepping away from our comfortable pews to bring God to the world. It’s following Jesus’ example to minister to the outcasts, the overlooked, the forgotten.

THE EDGE is about relationship, not religion. It’s God’s power being stronger and God’s love running deeper than anything people face. It’s being fearless in the face of adversity and willing to look the devil in the eye and say, You can’t have him or her anymore.

We are authors, Christians, people walking by faith. We are THE EDGE.

And the scribes and Pharisees brought unto him a woman taken in adultery; and when they had set her in the midst,  (4)  They said unto him, Master, this woman was taken in adultery, in the very act.  (5)  Now Moses in the law commanded us, that such should be stoned: but what sayest thou?  (6)  This they said, tempting him, that they might have to accuse him. But Jesus stooped down, and with his finger wrote on the ground, as though he heard them not.  (7)  So when they continued asking him, he lifted up himself, and said unto them, He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her.  (8)  And again he stooped down, and wrote on the ground.  (9)  And they which heard it, being convicted by their own conscience, went out one by one, beginning at the eldest, even unto the last: and Jesus was left alone, and the woman standing in the midst.  (10)  When Jesus had lifted up himself, and saw none but the woman, he said unto her, Woman, where are those thine accusers? hath no man condemned thee?  (11)  She said, No man, Lord. And Jesus said unto her, Neither do I condemn thee: go, and sin no more. (John 8:3-11)

CHAPTER 1

JANUARY 1945

Her dress fluttered to the floor, the straps of her slip sliding off one shoulder in its wake. Sorry, I was late. She reached up loosening the other side.

His eyes sparked, the reflection of the city lights through the windows dancing in his black pupils. Pillowing his arms behind his head, he leaned back against the satin headboard, seemingly content to observe.

Her slip followed the path of her skirt, and she stood there for a moment clad in only her underthings. Got caught up with the boss. You know how he gets, and I didn’t want to upset him else our little tête-à-tête will become public knowledge. Unfastening her brassiere, she tossed it in the floor and crawled across the mattress.

His hands embraced her waist, sliding over her shapely hips to a firm grasp of her bottom. Wouldn’t want that.

No. She leaned over, the tips of her breasts brushing his undershirt, and captured his mouth.

He returned her fervor with his own, the tip of his tongue doing a waltz with hers, and their body heat flared higher. The next thirty minutes became consumed with each other, ending the moment he pulled himself up from the mattress.

She lay there, admiring his backside. There’s a war on, you know, she said.

He glanced back, his shirt, just retrieved from the floor, crumpled in his hand. I know, and that’s what you’re here for, to help me forget. Shaking out the shirt, he put it back on. Left you some nylons on the table. You saw them?

You’re a peach, she replied. Enough for Frankie, too, I saw. Generous.

He fastened his pants, stomping his feet to settle the legs. I aim to be, else your favors would dry up.

No chance of that. She wriggled to the end of the bed and took hold of the unbuttoned edges of his shirt. Tell me you love me.

He laughed and bent down, kissing her long and hard. She all but capsized back into bed.

I love what you give me, he said.

His words soured in her gut. That’s really all this was. He had a wife and two kids living out in suburbia. But his job kept him in the city most nights, and, truth was, she was using him as much as he was using her. He gave her things the war had made scarce, making life a bit easier for she and her sister, and so helped pass the time.

He smacked her fanny, and she squeaked.

‘Til next time, doll, he said. He placed a fedora on his head and stepped away, casually crossing the room. At the table, where the nylons lay, he emptied his pockets. Keep the change.

He was gone in a flash, the door clicking shut behind him.

She deflated, her heart conflicted, as it always was, on the right and wrong of this. What had happened to make her the other woman? She’d grown up believing she’d have the American dream, an average home, a couple kids, a dog, but, instead, she worked all day to help fund the war effort, slept in a tiny apartment with her sister at night, and had these ... moments ... with him.

Not that she couldn’t find herself another man all her own, but military men these days were all the same – out looking for a good time, then off overseas, sometimes not coming back. This was no world to bring a family into. The idea of the Joneses was extinct.

She walked naked across the room and sat in one of the expensive padded chairs upside the table. Forty bucks and change and four pairs of nylons, she mumbled. The price of her pride as well as her modesty. She scooped the items up in her palm and glanced at the time. She had ten minutes to somehow make it back from
