The Indelible Heart
"Marianne Martin is a wonderful storyteller and a graceful writer with a light, witty touch with language and a sensitivity to the emotions of people in love. There is a tenderness and brightness to her characterizations that make the personalities quite beguiling."—Ann Bannon

Twelve years ago, Charlie Crawford shot dead his two lesbian neighbors. Now he's terminally ill and requesting early release from prison.
Back then, Sharon and her friends fought to bring him to justice. Now she has to find the strength to fight again. But the man who killed her friends also took her sobriety. And with it he took her partner, Laura. Sober again, all Sharon has left is a life she's just about surviving.
She'll do what she can to keep Charlie in jail. But it's hard—really hard—to cope with the news that Laura's back in town.
Hate has spoiled Sharon's world. There just doesn't seem any place for love. But she's forgotten just how powerful friendship can be. She'll soon remember.
Indelible is the inspiring sequel to the best-selling Love in the Balance.
