Romantic Suspense / Domestic Violence
Barbara lives in constant fear of her husband. She finally summons the courage to leave with their young daughter, Allie, but dreads the moment her husband learns of their escape. In his desire to control them and bend them to his will, he will leave no stone unturned to punish them–especially Barbara.
Grey’s future seems bleak, especially the day he is fired, but everything begins to turn around the moment he absently sinks down on a bench occupied by wealthy Gloria Withers. Gloria sees something in him that no one else bothers to notice and, within moments, a friendship is sparked that will withstand many trials.
When Barbara makes good her escape and arrives on the doorstep of her grandmother, Gloria, whom she hasn’t seen for years, Barbara is greeted instead by Grey. It doesn’t take long for a different kind of spark to fly as Barbara takes up residence in the Withers mansion.
When Grey falls inexorably in love with not only Barbara, but also her daughter Allie, he vows to do everything he can to protect them from her husband who is out for revenge.

“Poignant and heart wrenching, Author Stacy Eaton gives us a peek into the dark world of Domestic Abuse with her newest release. In Barbara’s Plea, we are taken down the dark path of Barbara Murphy, the wife of a prominent lawyer who abuses her on a daily basis. With the help of some friends, Barbara is able to escape with her daughter and return to her roots in her Grandmother’s home where she connects with her Grandmother’s new tenant, a woodworker named Greyson Bloodstone. One look into Barbara and Allie’s fearful eyes, and Grey is a goner for the fleeing duo. This story was heart-wrenching, to say the very least. As always, Stacy Eaton’s writing is heartfelt, knowledgeable, and helps you to understand a world you may know nothing about. I certainly didn’t. For those who have lived through it, and for those who are still living it, my heart truly goes out to you. An excellent read you won’t want to miss.” Amazon Reviewer
