Permanence by Vincent Zandri
Travel agent, Mary Kismet, lost her child in a heartbreaking drowning accident and blames herself. Sadly, her husband blames her too. She, also, loses her job. She’s left with nothing except her sessions with a psychiatrist. A man she is falling deeply in love with to the point of obsession.
At the request of her doctor, she accompanies him to Venice for a romantic vacation. Just the two of them, but there’s a deeper, darker reason for this visit and it further shakes Mary’s world. Something she cannot afford to let happen.
Mary and her doctor continue to grow closer, but at the same time, they are each trapped in their own tragic circumstances. When they return home, nothing is ever the same.
This book is told solely from Mary’s POV and it’s a heartrending story that will stick with readers long after the last page is turned. Mary is a tortured character who will bring tears to your eyes. It’s a disturbing book, but so well told that it will capture readers from the first page.
