The Last Victim, a Literary Romance Novel
Sophie Rothman has a husband, a family, a home and a twisted obsession – hoarding money. When arguments over money drive her husband, Harry, away, Sophie’s loneliness draws her into a secret love affair and an unwanted pregnancy. After her lover leaves her, Sophie begs Harry to return and deceives him into believing the child she’s carrying is his.
Jeanie is born, and the fate of this daughter hinges on Sophie keeping her secret. Jeanie grows into a beautiful strong-willed woman who is driven to pursue her dream of being an archaeologist.
Destiny leads Jeanie to Masada, an ancient ruin in the Israeli desert. In the harsh desert sands, she uncovers Israel’s lost treasures and finds her true love – David.
When Jeanie returns to New York and announces her plan to marry David, Sophie is forced to reveal her long-guarded secret and forbid the marriage.
The shocking truth threatens to shatter Jeanie’s dream of love and forever change her life.
The Last Victim is a romance novel about forbidden love, betrayal and the consequences of a life-changing lie. It’s a story spanning three decades – from the streets of New York in the 1940s to the streets of Israel in the 1960s.
