Finding Evelyn follows a woman who tries to escape her abusive marriage.

A heartrending and powerful story

The aftermath of that decision on her and the people who unexpectedly help her along the way.

And that is what I also loved about this book - that she ran across good, kind people who wanted to help, t

I thoroughly enjoyed this story and was hooked from the start. It reminded me of the movie Sleeping With The Enemy. And as I read it I could totally picture it as a Netflix movie.

Michelle Leigh Miller has been a writer for as long as she can remember. While creative writing has always been a part of her life, she spent most of her writing career as a journalist. In January 2016, she dusted off a completed novel that had been gathering dust on a flash drive and published it on Amazon. That experience reignited an old flame she thought had long ago burned out.
