A novel by

Helene and Frankie Flowers had a different sort of marriage. She’d longed for a beautiful wedding and a travel companion, and he wanted something to take him away from the tedium of his life in a boarding house and work at a factory. Love was not part of the equation. But then Frankie fell in love with his wife, which alarmed her, but thrilled him. A big woman, now over three-hundred pounds, she thought her weight would keep annoying men away. That wasn’t to be. During an August heat wave in a small town in Connecticut, she has to deal with a strapping, handsome handyman named Zeke, who is suddenly intrigued by her, as well as a sad, dull-witted teenager she inadvertently offends. He begins to stalk her. Then there is her older brother, a dishonest schemer, an ex-con, confined to a wheelchair after being hit by a bus and now squatting in her dining room—a brother she’s hated since her harrowing childhood. The feeling is mutual. These four men circle Helene’s carefully planned life and throw her off balance. Tempers flare, rivalry erupts, jealousies, accusation, threats.
Sooner or later there is a murder.
