Laney, a novella by new Author Cristano Law
Mariel K. Milton, a mild mannered middle school teacher, draws the attention of the world around her as she carries on her quiet little romance with her coworker, Clayton DeLaney. In the world he shares with her, Laney seems larger than life. Colleagues fawn over him. Friends and associates celebrate him. Yet, Mariel leads a meek and humble life taking pride in challenging young minds, preparing them for the world before them.
But, Laney’s other world, the one that often steals him away from her, the one that tends to ruin their perfect evenings together, will abruptly cut her romance short, challenge everything she once believed about life, and in cold blooded murder steal Laney away from her for the last time. With no chance to grieve, Mariel is thrust right in the middle of the bedlam that was his life.
Despite the relentless pursuit by the assailants that threaten her life or the fact that the authorities don’t believe that Laney ever even existed or the staff who thinks she’s lost her mind, Mariel struggles to maintain her resilience to it all. What’s worse is that her aging parents are sucked up in the turmoil that has become her life.
As the secrets of Laney’s life are revealed, Mariel is faced with the realization that in order for her to survive this nightmare, everything that her beau was, she, herself, may have to become!
