"A wonderful love story in the face of incredible evil and the power of family. It will grab you the heart and hold on."
"This is a story of loss, love and revenge, and will have you caught between wanting to know what happens, and not wanting this story to end. This is a series worth reading, and Nancy C Weeks is always one of my 'must read' authors."
