Book Description: Merle tells us her tale of love, longing, and desperation. As she struggles with the guilt over her husband’s suicide, Merle’s gut wrenching quest for redemption takes her on a downward spiral into a hell of her own making. Resigned to a life of self-mutilation, abuse, and despair, will she find hope in a mysterious stranger, or will she die, entangled in a sadistic relationship with her husband’s best friend. The Kissing Room is a story of death and renewal, of love lost, and of salvation found in the most unlikely of places.  It is the story of two hearts united in cruelty and pain who have only to look to each other for hope.
