WSRep Reading Series: Love in Bahia

Love in Bahia Written by Alan Kilpatrick

Presented by WSRep Reading Series


Fleeing her past as a nurse's aide at a nursing home in Eden Prairie, Minnesota, Sissy Thorton visits her ex-lover, Darla who's living in a trailer park in West Texas with her ex-husband Earl. Sissy hopes to rekindle their former romance as well as find refuge from her troubled past. But things get nasty when the topic turns to stolen jewelry and some elderly patients who died under mysterious circumstances at the retirement home where both Sissy and Darla were employed.
