A Woman Lost

Can Lizzie find her way?

Elizabeth “Lizzie” Petrie has it all. She’s rich, beautiful, intelligent, and successful. None of this matters to her mom. Les-bi-an. That’s all her mom sees.

Even though Lizzie insists her mom’s antagonism does not bother her, Lizzie distances herself from her entire family. When her brother, Peter, calls her out of the blue to announce he’s getting married, Lizzie’s entire life changes drastically. Peter’s fiancée wants to bring the lesbian outcast back into the family. Will this desire cause Lizzie to lose everything dear to her?

Sarah, Lizzie’s girlfriend, is ecstatic about this change in Lizzie’s personal life. Sarah, the hopeless romantic, wants it all, including settling down with the fiercely independent Lizzie.

Can Lizzie be tamed? And can she survive her family and all of their secrets?

Lizzie Petrie is rich, smart, and successful, but her mom hates her for being a lesbian. She avoids her family until her brother’s wedding forces her to reconnect.

His fiancée welcomes Lizzie, but will this jeopardize her relationship with Sarah, her girlfriend who wants to settle down?

Can Lizzie handle her family’s secrets?
