No Fire Escape in Hell
Escaping an abusive marriage, Maddy, a singing telegram performer, is forced to live in her car while trying to raise 100 grand to pay her husband to go away
Maddy makes a fine living as a singing-telegram performer and is the proud mother to an over-achiever. The downside? She's in a mentally abusive relationship with her husband that she fears may turn physical at any time. Her husband agrees to leave the marriage, but only if she hands over 100 grand in cash.
Determined to make that goal, but unable to live with her unstable spouse any longer, Maddy decides to move out. Her only option, in order to save as much money as possible, is to move into her car...
Heartfelt and humorous, No Fire Escape in Hell will have you rooting for Maddy as she encounters the goodness in some folk, the badness in others, and endures sleepless nights avoiding the eye of police as she looks for places to take a nap.
