No One Ever Chooses to Be Trampled Underfoot

. . . Or do they? The effects of Fate were immediately felt by the Benedict family after their move in 1968, from New York City to New Jersey, and reverberate far into the future in this dramatic and fast-paced, stands-alone follow-up novel.

Trampled Underfoot takes us on one more nostalgic journey through the 1970s and, once again, Ms. Good blurs the lines between true life events and fiction—seamlessly picking up the story from when we last saw Lia Benedict at the crossroads of life.

It’s spring of 1976 and Lia, the hopeless romantic, is now 23 years of age and, whether by choice or by the hands of Fate, had recently become Mrs. Vic Somers. She’d adopted the same controversial beliefs first introduced by her mother, Marie, upon her father’s untimely death in 1970. This latest development creates a deeper rift in relations within the Benedict family.

Vic Somers had followed his bride’s footsteps in her quest for righteousness and God’s blessing, but has Vic’s defective heart really changed from the cheating ways it once possessed?

Downtrodden, Lia’s faith is shaken and her confidence crushed, but what can she do? Nothing. “My life’s been set in stone and the cement is hardening around my feet.” Immobilized and in denial, the dogma of a strict religion places an unhealthy fear of The Judgment Day if she makes any missteps in the here and now.

*Trampled Underfoot is the follow-up to Just Another Sunday but stands on its own and is an enjoyable read all by itself.*

An excerpt from

Trampled Underfoot

The storm would not go quietly. An early morning squall whipped torrents of rain from Raritan Bay into Keyport Harbor, drenching clusters of homes and land along the sandy shore communities of Union Beach, Keyport, and further up into Cliffwood Beach, a small town dubbed the forgotten resort of upper Monmouth County, New Jersey—a fifteen minute car ride from the Benedict’s family home. By morning’s light, the strong gusty winds, along with alternating tranquil breezes, blew remnants of the nasty weather further aloft, whistling loudly through treetops, drafty windows and doors on its way out.
