"I love the Aussie setting in this page-turning psychological thriller. My emotions were high as the fate of an innocent child was at stake." - Renee Conoulty at HeySaidRenee.
"I think this novel really speaks of what love really mean and just how powerful love can make a person." - Katrina Hart at Writing, Inspiration and Muses.
In a rambling house in a small Australian beach town, Elena Jameson is recovering from her recent divorce. To her delight, she is given the opportunity to foster a little boy, Daniel, whose mother is dead and whose violent father is in rehab. As Elena and Daniel explore the beautiful bay and wild bushland, they form a profound bond that will change their lives forever.
Then Daniel’s father discovers his whereabouts and begins a campaign of terror – not to get his son back, but to prevent Elena giving Daniel a new life.
As the violence escalates, Elena finds that she’s willing to do whatever it takes to protect Daniel from the brutality of his past and an uncertain future. Sometimes the only way to get what you want is to pay the price in blood.
A gothic tale of love and loss, bravery and hope.
