Quicksand

Quicksand: A Cautionary Love Story


What would be your reaction if you walked into your office today and were met by two hardnosed FBI agents who told you in cold and hostile words that your husband is not who he says he is? He is in fact a person with another life and is under arrest as the perpetrator of the biggest bank robbery in your state's history. What would be your first words? What would you believe? What would you do? In a contemporary memoir that will intrigue any woman who has fallen in love with the wrong man, Quicksand chronicles how love, trust and devotion can become blinding, binding, and devastating. The story begins in Knoxville, Tennessee where Sarah Jones, a teacher and newly divorced, meets Justin Green, a salesman with a bank security company, who projects genuine compassion, charm, attentiveness and attractiveness qualities that intrigue, captivate and seduce Sarah into a passionate relationship. Within a month, Sarah is in love, and within a year they are married and living the kind of life Sarah had always dreamed of. They buy a condominium. They travel. They spend long weekends secluded in mountain cabins and at resorts in exotic locales. They quit their jobs and open their own small business.Justin has a private side to him, a past that saddens him to talk about. This past includes parents who were killed in an automobile accident plus a failed marriage and a daughter in California that he is not allowed to see. He also has an inheritance that he draws upon from time to time a portion of a family real estate business left by his parents in California and managed by his brothers. Now trying to put this painful past behind him, Justin is building a new future, a new life with Sarah. This is what Justin says and what Sarah believes until the FBI come calling one morning in April. Travel with her as she journeys through an ever-widening pit of deception until she emerges ten years later on a solid rock of self discovery.
