This is a fictional novel that incorporates aspects of a mystery, suspense and thriller. Annie Harper's husband died, leaving her and her seven year old daughter, Lisa, without financial means. In a seemingly act of desperation, Annie married Dutch, a cruel and vicious man. To save Lisa from Dutch's hatred and evil, Annie gives up custody to a close friend and is separated from Lisa for over ten years. Fast forward twelve years and a compelling, supensefull thriller develops. What will Dutch do, now that Lisa is old enough to be self-sufficent and can rescue her mother from his prison? Moreover, how does the past tie to the current events of Annie's and Lisa's lives?
This novel is smart and clever. There is an intricacy of characters that slowly reveal mysteries and keeps the book suspenseful. The more you read the harder it is to put down! Rich in complex plots and character development, this book is a must read. I highly recommend this book to everyone who enjoys fiction.
I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review. This in no way influenced my review.
