When Finn McKenna's lover walks out on her, she is shattered by the prospect of aging alone. Finn retreats to upstate New York, hoping to piece together her shattered spirit. Instead, she must deal with the return of both Timothy O'Neill, the psychopath who raped her thirty years earlier and Rosemary, the child born of that violation.
When O'Neill resurfaces, Finn can no longer hide from the past. She seeks to exorcise it by speaking publicly about being raped. The media attention results in a message from Rosemary. Though Rosemary acts eager for a relationship, she conceals her feelings about the brutality of her conception, being adopted and her conflict between birth and adoptive mothers. They move cautiously towards a relationship, but Finn's growing love remains clouded by her hatred and fear of Rosemary's father. She meets her ultimate challenge in a confrontation with O'Neill, where her survival may depend on her ability to forgive.
(your hook ends here)
New Year's Eve made Finn think of endings, not beginnings. When her lover, Dolores, proposed a party, she hated the thought of all that auld acquaintance melancholy permeating their apartment.
Dolores, however, was rarely swayed from a plan. "We never have parties. Why do you object, because it's my idea?"
Some years ago I knew a woman who was active in Right to Life. She too was raped and conceived a child. To her enormous credit she held fast to her beliefs and carried the pregnancy to term, and placed the child with an adoptive family. I'm in awe of her moral courage.
Because of that I'd probably read these pages, but you need to focus on the central part of the book: forgiveness. Start with Finn retreats to upstate NY after her lover leaves her. I'm assuming upstate NY is where the crime occurred. And a rapist doesn't have to be a psychopath to be scary. And why do you have so much time passing? 30 years is a long time. Is there a particular reason Rosemary needs to be 30 years old?
I'd be much more interested in this if there was a reason that Timothy had to be contacted, rather than he just resurfaced. Genetic testing, hereditary illness, kidney transplant. That stuff DOES happen. It would also allow you to explore forgiveness.
You've got an interesting idea here. Don't get wound up in outlandish. The more real your characters, the more we'll identify with them.
