Forever Beth
(The Truth Of It All)
by Elizabeth Cook-Howard

Genres: Romance

Blurb:
The dignity of a woman is not defined by the clothes on her back, money she may or may not have or the success of her man. Dignity is defined by the challenges faced and conquered, nobility of character and worthiness.  For Beth Walker who has endured a lifetime of tumultuous storms once again finds herself at a crossroad. When she thought her life was at the peak of all happiness (blessed with a healthy child, married to a man who loved and adored her and more importantly to be alive to experience it all) memories of her past continue to haunt her daily living and intensifies her need to understand her past to have a future
The Truth of It All, book three and final installment in the Forever Beth Series finally exposes who is really behind Beth’s abduction and attempted murder, the murders of Rosie and Rosa Morales and who is ultimately responsible for the tragedies Beth has endured. But most importantly the question readers have had since Lost and found (1st installment in the Forever Beth Series) regarding Kevin’s instant eagerness to protect and watch over Beth from that first encounter at the Morales’s murder scene is finally reveled.
The conclusion to a three part romance – mystery filled page turner that keeps you guessing to the very end. Forever a Beth The Truth Of it All.

Excerpt:
I stare at the television hoping to see anything other than another update on my health or the news of the century, Detective Kevin Walker with the NYPD slumming as a detective when all along a multimillionaire himself and sole heir to his grandfather’s billion dollar empire. One reporter questioning the police department’s background checks and confirming that higher ups knew who he was.

Cynthia and Kevin over the past few weeks done well keeping the TV channel on everything but the news and newspapers, not one seen in anyone’s possession while visiting with me. It wasn’t until yesterday that I was able to change the channel on the TV, changing to the local news. The only time really I was awake and Kevin getting some much needed sleep. I turn to look at my husband now sleep in a very uncomfortable chair. His long legs stretched across, one hand holding up his head the other lingering into the bassinet, touching our pride and joy’s hand as they each sleep. I smile instantly. I hope his nap last longer than the usual twenty minutes.

Already four in the morning and I find myself restless and bored. I begin watching PBS – How to Paint. Not really paying attention I turn and re focus on my husband and our sweet bundle of joy. I fight tears battling to come forth. It’s been several weeks since that day, many weeks here in this hospital. But in a few hours we are heading finally home. Back to comfort back to the one place I feel the safest. Although not one word spoken by anyone regarding that day, the pain and tears tell it all. JD breaking down each time I recall him sitting with me. I remember him saying “I’m not a praying man but I thank the heavens for your survival and for blessing me with my first great grandchild”. Until a few days ago too weak to speak all I could do was smile at JD and lightly squeeze his hand.

My loving sister aged a bit through all this – because of all this. Yesterday pointing out the grey hairs I caused. It felt good to laugh with her again. But the pain, I see it. Everyone being brave, not saying a word. Adele and John too by my side. Worried for me yes but my heartaches knowing their tears were and are more so for their grandson. I heard it in Adele’s voice shortly after. Sitting with me, whispering in my ear, “My grandson loves you with all he has to give. Baby you can’t leave him, he only just begun to live”. So much pain I’ve caused and the one person I seemed to hurt the most is the man whose made me the happiest I’ve ever been.

Interrupting my pity party, Nurse Cathy enters. I immediately put my finger over my lips and point to Kevin. With a smile and nod she understands.

In a whisper He finally sleeps!

Smiling, yes hopefully he will get somewhat of a decent rest.

How are you feeling?

Great. No offense but I can’t wait for my discharge later today.

No offense taken, you’ve been here almost five weeks now. But leaving here doesn’t mean you’re done healing, you will have several restrictions to adhere to.

Before I can respond, I hear Kevin’s voice. Stretching both his arms and legs Oh she will adhere to each and every rule I assure you.

Nurse Cathy smiles at me

Kevin I didn’t mean to wake you.

You didn’t. And why are you up?

Couldn’t sleep.

Mrs. Walker would you like something to help you sleep?

No.. No I’m fine. Plus a rare opportunity to see my husband sleep.

Presenting a bit embarrassed I’m going to leave you two. I’m right outside if you need anything.

Thank you Kevin responds as he stands, stretches again and lays next to me. Pulling me closer into him we lay in each other’s embrace. Kissing the top of my head while caressing my arm I missed this…I missed having you in my arms.

I know the feeling Mr. Walker but knowing you were and are with me is enough to get me by until we get home. Lifting myself up to look Kevin directly in his eyes Which by the way, I need you to promise me when we get home no fuss and you will rest.

Smiling Me rest? You need to promise me you will take an easy…. Bed rest only, nothing more.

We will see. But right now resuming my position but snuggling closer, it feels good to be in your arms. I’m going to take advantage of this before our beautiful bundle of joy wakes.
