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.
But Allie’s return home shatters the quaint, coastal community of Brunswick, Georgia. Even her own daughter Caroline, now a teenager, bristles at Allie’s claims of innocence. Refusing defeat, a stronger, smarter Allie launches a battle for the truth, digging deeply into the past even if it threatens her parole status, personal safety, and the already-fragile bond with family.
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.
Allie spent 10 years in prison for a horrific crime that she did not commit. She is determined to prove who did but doesn’t know how to do that without causing more problems for her teenage daughter. Her daughter is struggling with dealing with her mother’s release and doesn’t know who to trust once rumors begin to spread around her small town.
This story has such a great synopsis but I felt the writing style was a bit off for me. I struggled to move through this book but I did want to know the conclusion. It was a bit slow moving for me.
I gave this book 3 crowns.
I received this book for review by the publisher through BookLook Bloggers.
