Kenzie Adamson wasn’t always this way. There was a time when she was happy—she’d smile and laugh. She once kept in touch with her friends and cared about their well-being. Hell, she once cared about her own well-being. Now, Kenzie is different. She’s going through the motions every day, not caring about herself or anyone else. She’s being the only thing she can be right now—numb.
Sean Despain wasn’t always this way. There was a time when he was patient and well-mannered. He used to pride himself on being compassionate and sympathetic. He was the glue that held his family together.
Now, Sean is different. He’s short-tempered and callous. He drinks too much and spends his nights in a state of alcohol induced numbness.
Three years ago, their lives changed drastically.
From a rural community in southern Oklahoma, Melissa Townsend is a married dental assistant with two children; and on the surface, the picture of today’s ordinary working wife and mother from Smalltown, U.S.A.
As a busy mom, she initially found her escape in reading. It is just in the past few years that she’s found her passion and enjoyment of telling her own stories. Having never travelled or experienced much beyond the realm of country-living, Melissa finds herself taking journeys through an array of genres and different writing styles. Don’t let her quiet, small town, ordinary demeanor mislead you. Sit with her for very long and you will quickly discover her wit, dry sense of humor, and unique perception of the world around her. It’s these characteristics spieled out into her stories that define her writing style and will keep you wanting more.
