Southern Medley and a Sordid Affair
She is a young college student, born and raised in the deep South and dreaming of the future. But for Petra, everything changes when she meets Bertram. Introduced to her by a mutual friend, the French aristocrat is many years her senior, but it isn't long before the two embark on a whirlwind romance. Soon they are married and traveling the world together as she continues her education at prestigious international universities. But when Bertram suddenly falls victim to a financial downfall, the two eventually settle back in the southern United States, selling their house to move to a low-cost apartment complex. It is here she meets a building maintenance man named Dick, and, in indulging in an erotic affair, becomes trapped in a sick web of manipulation and lies. While struggling against the psychological warfare of a mentally ill lover, Petra must find a way to free her marriage from the devastation of her choice-and put the pieces of her life back together again. In gripping and unforgettable detail, Southern Medley and a Sordid Affair explores the repercussions of infidelity within a marriage while uncovering the damaging effects of mental and psychological abuse.
