Will she have to lose her child to save her child?
The day she tells her boyfriend she’s pregnant, is the same day he tells her he’s been accused of molestation. His trial is set to begin the following day.
She needs answers…
To get them, she tricks her boyfriend into signing a release form, giving her full access to all of his legal documents. She uncovers the truth, he’s guilty.
To save her unborn child from this monster, she gets an abortion.
FIVE YEARS LATER and still rebuilding her life, Julie finds out her ex-boyfriend has just become the most wanted man in America, involved in human trafficking. When detectives ask for her help locating him, she gets drawn into a baffling mystery. What began as a seemingly simple search soon turns into a much darker reality.
Someone from her past is watching…
Bit by bit, the tapestry of her own secret childhood begins to unravel. What she learns about her past will haunt her forever: family isn’t always what it seems.
Can she help bring this predator to justice, or will she die trying?

I wanted to throw up. It was so disturbing to hear her talk about a grown man trying to have sexual relations with a child. I expressed my deepest condolences to her.
Then she asked me the million-dollar question: “Are you still with James?”
“No way, of course not, but I have a problem. I found out the day before he told me about his court date that I was pregnant with his child.”
I could actually hear her gasp on the other end of the phone.
Without taking another breath she said, “You have to get rid of that baby.”

I’m definitely intrigued! Thanks for sharing the excerpt. xx
Aww thank you so much ❤️
Good review. I think it would be hard to read, but I do wonder about the abortion. How could that possibly be a positive for her unborn baby? The “father” was already in trouble with the law for molestation so there is not a chance he could win any kind of custody rights. Was this actually a dilemma for Julie or did she have the abortion as a knee-jerk reaction?
Linda I have read the book. There are too many complexities in the story
To me, that says that it was not an easily made decision, that there was a lot involved.
This was just an extract
