My Review

Can you imagine waking up after a car accident involving you and your child? No, how about if there was another mystery child who was also in the car on impact?

I know, right? This kind of story can’t be ignored and I was hooked right after reading the quick summary. Running from a traumatic and turbulent childhood, Holly finds happiness in her adult life with a nice husband, a job she loves and her own family where she’s not fearful of what the next day would hold or what people’s true motives are. She know the little family she’s worked so hard for is what she’s always needed. Unconditional love without schemes and crime in the mix.

I can’t give anything away, other than tell you a surprise awaits you. Does Holly get what she wants in the end? And if so, what is it that she REALLY craves.
