One Who Is Loved
by Jennifer Taylor

"Why does this keep happening to me? What did I do to deserve such unrest in my life!"

Relationships begin, blossom, and occasionally burst in this tale of a woman’s life gone completely off the rails. From her teenage years through young adulthood, we follow the starts and stops of a protagonist who plays with others’ lives like the strings on a violin. The music being heard, however, is a cacophony of trickery, treachery, and even homicide.

In a contemporary narrative chronicled out of sequence, two people meet and fall in love. One is a pillar of honesty, graciousness, and compassion. The other is the epitome of falseness, amorality, and indifference. Their initial electric attraction to one another is powerful, but it begins to slowly disintegrate as events begin to snowball, events that shine a revealing light on secrets one tries desperately to keep hidden. Eventually, murder and more become part of what one will do to hold onto the other. How far can the bands of love stretch before they break violently?

Author Taylor spins her yarn with a firm hand on the loom. She creates vivid characters that become instantly identifiable when she wants them to be, like the noble Terrance and the uncontrollable Natalie. She’s also capable of making characters mysterious, such as the enigmatic Priyanka. Taylor keeps readers on their toes with shifting time frames and multiple points of view. Her pace is swift, with her prose filling in any comprehension crevasses, while her dialogue adds spice to the flesh and blood of the people populating her pages.
