An emotionally charged domestic suspense novel about a mother unraveling the truth behind how her daughter became brain-dead. And pregnant.
A search for the truth. A lifetime of lies.
Phone calls in the middle of the night are never a good thing. And for Abi Knight the phone call turns out to be the news every parent dreads receiving. Her daughter, Olivia, has been in an accident. She was found at the bottom of a bridge, bruised and broken.
The doctors say she is brain-dead and must remain on life support until her baby is further along. Baby? How could she not know her daughter was pregnant? And why are there bruises on her wrists?
The police may have ruled this an accident but Abi will go to hell and back to find out who did this to her daughter. And in doing so secrets are exposed, lives will never be the same.
Told with Olivia’s voice from the months leading up to her supposed accident and Abi’s voice in current time with some bad past secrets coming to light as well. And when you start spilling secrets, not everyone is on board.
This was one of the most heartbreaking and suspenseful books I’ve read in a while. I kept going back and forth with the characters. None of them were all bad or all good. They were your neighbors and their teenagers, people you’ve known all your life and yet how much do you really know your own family? We think we are protecting them but the secrets and lies always come to light and it always is painful.
This story will grab your heart and won’t let go until the last page. And even then, I still had hope.
Very Well Done!
