If you have read it and havent commented here, please take a moment to let us know what you thought of the book.In the near future, pretty, young Natalie Adams has finished college, left her boyfriend, and moved 650 miles to the outskirts of a big new city to begin her career and a new life.
As it happens, the new life is nothing like what she’d expected. The slightly careless 22-year-old has gotten herself into trouble with the law in her new exurb hometown of River’s Edge. Now she faces a punishment beyond anything she expected or considered fair: the temporary but lengthy loss of her sight.
That changes not only her life, career, and financial future, but her perception of who and what she is.As time goes on, Natalie finds love in the arms of the woman who is helping her cope with being blind. As her limitations become apparent, she’s pressured into a career as an exotic dancer that she never would have chosen. Can the charming young woman survive the physical, social, and mental changes she’s forced to endure?
Will her sense of self remain intact as she negotiates the darkened environment of her new reality? Will she be forced to change so dramatically that Natalie will forever disappear, to be replaced by a less innocent, more cynical, worldly, experienced, hard, and driven young woman? Does the sexuality of the world that she’s attempting to navigate overwhelm her?Publisher’s Summary: Eighteen Months is erotic drama at its gut-wrenching best.
