Normandie Fischer

Author Normandie Fischerabout this book: From award-winning author Normandie Fischer comes Sailing out of Darkness, a multi-layered story of love and forgiveness.

When her husband of twenty-plus years decamps, a devastated Samantha falls into a disastrous affair with her childhood best friend. He won't quit knocking on her door, and she can't seem to say no to him. All she can do is flee to Italy to visit her daughter and try to forget her lover's flashing black eyes, his passion for sailing--and, of course, his live-in girlfriend.

As Sam settles in a small Italian town where she hopes the views and the pace will help her heal, the last thing on her mind is romance. Then ex-pat mystery writer Teo Anderson shows up with his own scars, both physical and emotional, and offers friendship and the chance to laugh again. But not even sailing the Mediterranean and playing tourist with this delightful man can assuage Sam's guilt, especially when consequences escalate and the fallout threatens more than just Samantha's peace of mind.
