Goodreads: For overprotective parent Alyson Ward, any time her daughter, Lyla, is out of sight is reason to panic. So it’s a big step for her when she lets Lyla attend a sleepover at her cousin’s house. Comforted by the knowledge that her sister, Tricia, is the chaperone, Alyson does the one thing she never thought possible: she lets go and trusts that her daughter will be safe.
But Alyson’s sense of peace is short lived. When Lyla comes home the next morning, she reveals something that could tear apart not only their family but also the entire community. Now, Alyson and Tricia must confront their painful shared past as they come together to help a little girl who they fear might be harboring terrible secrets similar to their own. Will the sisters be strong enough to face their demons in order to protect the child, even if it means telling their most private truths?
Ope’s Opinion: Oh, my! this has to be one of the top five books of 2015 for me. I can not believe how absorbed I was in this story from the very beginning until I flipped the last page.
Each one of the women in this book is strong in their own way. They are supportive of each other and very relatable. The subject matter is difficult to deal with. Steena Holmes did it in a way that made you feel deeply for everyone.
If you have not read a Steena Holmes book this would be a good choice, but then any of her books are awesome. I look forward to her next book.
Rating: 5 + – This book is so good it will be passed on and on and on……
