Lifelines: Kate's Story

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


This book contains mature content.

Kate Taylor hasn't had a good night's sleep since her husband David died. It doesn't help that David's dog, Socrates, watches her constantly as if he expects her to bring his master back; that her personal life is a series of telephone conversations with her evasive adult daughter and her demanding mother; that working as a family counselor she regularly faces a client named Rachel, a narcissistic woman who evokes Kate's most painful memories.

Kate is exhausted: tired of coping, tired of listening, tired of life. Then one night on an icy road, she goes into a treacherous skid. A razor's edge from death, she realizes she wants to live.

She makes plans. She sets goals. She takes a lover. She copes with her daughter's newest crisis and her mother's financial foolishness. Then Kate discovers something about Rachel that throws her into an ethical nightmare.

Her career could be destroyed.

… so could her life.

Lifelines: Kate

The writing in Lifelines: Kate’s Story is excellent, the characters complicated and very human, which makes them especially interesting. Kate Taylor is trying to recover from loss of her husband but feels judged on every side—even by Socrates her dead husband’s dog. As she struggles to give her life new order and energy, she finds herself colliding with her daughter, her mother, and a self-centered patient. She is lost, directionless; it’s easy to relate to her deep sense of defeat and uncertainty as she feels her way through each troubled relationship. She begins to find solace in a new friend who is easy to talk to, but fears their relationship cannot grow among violated ethics, violence, and threats against their lives. She might be strong enough to survive, but is she strong enough to allow herself a chance at being happy? A compelling read.
