About the Book:
All Allie Marshall wants is a fresh start. But when dark secrets refuse to stay buried, will her chance at a new life be shattered forever?
Convicted of a crime she didn t commit, Allie watched a decade of her life vanish time that can never be recovered. Now, out on parole, Allie is determined to clear her name, rebuild her life, and reconnect with the daughter she barely knows.
As her commitment to finding the truth intensifies, what Allie ultimately uncovers is far worse than she imagined. Her own sister has been hiding a dark secret one that holds the key to Allie s freedom.”
I have not had many reads that I feel like I don’t want to put down this year so far. But, this book surprised me.
This was a book with three main characters, and four different points of view. But instead of feeling choppy or broken, you felt engaged and drawn in by each one. As you read, trying to discover the “bad guy”, my heart started racing with anticipation.
It drew you into the story, living out what each character felt, saw, thought and did. You suspect, but don’t confirm who did what. Also, unlike complaints about Ms. McNeil’s previous book, this book did not contain any words that people would find offensive.
In the end, forgiveness is the key part of the story. Throughout the story, the story of forgiveness when falsely accused and mistreated by others is spoken again and again. I really enjoyed this story!
