How far would you go to protect your marriage?
In Sadeqa Johnson’s Second House from the Corner, Felicia Lyons struggles to sprint ahead of the demands of motherhood while her husband spends long days at the office. When the children won’t stop screaming her name or arguing over toy trucks and pretzel sticks, she sometimes wonders what it would be like to get in her car and drive away.
Then one evening the telephone rings, and in a split second Felicia’s life is turned upside down. She hasn’t been completely honest about her upbringing, and her deception forces her return to her childhood home, where she must confront the family demons and long-buried secrets she thought she had left behind.
