Is it ever too late to leave your past and the secrets that haunt you behind?

What makes us step back to examine the events and people that have shaped our lives? And what happens when what we discover leads to more questions?

Angelica Schirrick wonders how her life could have gotten so far off-track. With two children in tow, she begins a journey of self-discovery that leads her back home to Ohio. It pains her to remember the promise her future once held and the shattering revelations that derailed her life.

Can she face the failures and secrets of her past and move forward? Somehow she must learn to accept the violence of her beginning before she can be open to life, and a second chance at love.

Thoughts
I love books about family relationships. And even though I don’t like family drama or betrayal in real life, I love it in books.

This book had it all, and Angelica is devastated when the truth comes out. This is an emotionally charged book that keeps you turning the pages even when you know you should close the book and get other stuff done.

The characters and situations are believable and you can’t help but feel for Angelica and want so much for everything to turn out ok. I haven’t been reading many “heavier” novels lately, but I’m glad I decided to give this a try. I don’t know how anyone could read this and not get emotional, but like I said before, you won’t want to stop until the end.

There’s so much more to this book than what I’ve mentioned. It is definitely a winner and I would absolutely recommend it. It’s going on my “Best of 2016” list.
