When a woman is at the end of her rope, anything can happen

This short story was included in an anthology, Deadly by the Dozen, edited by Mark Terry. Reviewers singled it out for praise: "This book was the perfect read for a week of appointments, sitting in waiting rooms and whipping out my Kindle for ten minutes at a time! All the stories in here were capably written, and all captured my attention in way or another. However...the absolute stand out for me was `Indian Summer' by Lise McClendon. It was just fabulous - a great mix of good writing, good characters and a strong element of mystery. That story would stand out anywhere."
