Leaving Before It's Over is a deeply compelling novel that explores the true meaning of family. When Roy Vines married his wife, Rosalind, he traded his family and his inheritance for love-a painful choice that has blessed them with years of joy nestled in rural North Carolina with their beautiful daughters, sixteen-year-old Lola and little Janie Ray. But their happiness is threatened when Rosalind suddenly falls ill. Desperate to get her the help she needs, Roy does the one thing he swore he'd never do-turn to his heartless and bitter identical twin brother, Mont, for help. The price is steep-and includes opening their home to a teenage boy who believes Roy is the father who abandoned him.
