This books was so suspenseful and a definite page-turner.

This story has a dark side and Emily goes through experiences we can hardly begin to imagine. She is betrayed by people she once considered to be family. The relationship between Emily and Casey is a redeeming factor in this narrative. Without Casey in the story I could not have finished. Reading all the way to the end reveals the power of redemption and forgiveness.
