About the Book

Lyric Stokes lives, by most standards, a charmed life. Married to Michael Stokes, a prominent heart surgeon, she has financial security and lives in the lap of luxury. All is not perfect, though. Lyric feels inadequate because she gave birth to a daughter, rather than the son that her husband so desperately wanted.
After an unexpected turn of events, Lyric discovers that she’s pregnant again, but now she has to decide whether she even wants to keep the child she has longed for. She seeks solace in her church, where her daughter also feels at home; but they can’t get Michael to join them. Disagreeing with organized religion, he has put his job before all else, including God. The distance between the couple grows further every day.

Nigel Fredericks has a history of stalking women. He’s been accused, but never convicted. Now he’s set his sights on Lyric. She’s at a low point in her life, and Nigel knows just how to take advantage of that vulnerability. Lyric’s life is turned upside down; Nigel is like a cancer eating away at her mental stability, her marriage, and ultimately, her life. Will Michael reevaluate his priorities and his faith in time to save his family?

  1. This sounds like a very good book. I’ll need to read Divorcing the Devil first, as I don’t like books out of order. I’l like to know the inner thinking of Nigel and the outcome of the book! Thanks. Dwan’s books are on my to be read list!

  2. Thank you, Linda, for stopping by and sharing such an enthusiastic comment about Dwan’s book. Blessings to you, my dear.

  3. I am really studying book covers lately, and this one is killer good!!!

    Can you read Dwan’s books out of order?


  4. Good question, Patti. I’m new to Dwan’s books as well so I’ll let her answer when she swings by during the tour.

    Blessings, sweet pea.

  5. Thanks, Sharon! It’s been a pleasure to have your blog aboard the Tywebbin Blog Tours. I hope you enjoy Dwan’s latest book release, My Mother’s Child.

    Hey Patti and Linda! Thank you ladies for stopping by as well.

  6. Hi Sharon! Thanks for allowing me the opportunity to have a spot on your blog.

    @Linda–Thank you! When I received the author copies of My Mother’s Child from my publisher, I almost cried because I loved the cover that much! I greatly appreciate you adding my books, Divorcing the Devil and My Mother’s Child to your reading list. Many thanks for the support!

    @Patti–Thanks for the compliment on my book cover. I like the cover too. At first I wasn’t feeling the covers originally presented to me, so I asked my husband to help. He’s a graphic artist and had no problem designing the right front cover for the book. Fortunately my publisher agreed.

    To answer your question about reading the books out of order, yes you can. At least with Divorcing the Devil and My Mother’s Child you can do that. Nigel’s a main character in My Mother’s Child; however, he was only mentioned in Divorcing the Devil.
