There is a world of horror out there and I don’t think we can ever imagine how awful life can be. This novel spells some of them out and gives you hope that somewhere out there, people are doing all they can to help prevent them. A great read with a surprise ending. This is the third Susan Lewis book I have read. You can read my review of The Girl Who Came Back and You Said Forever by clicking on the titles.
