About the Book:
Zoe Johnson spent most of her life living in the shadows, never drawing attention to herself, never investing in people or places. But when a wide-eyed, bedraggled teenager with no memory walks into the diner where Zoe works, everything changes. Now, against her better judgment, Zoe, who has been trying to outrun her own painful memories of the past, finds herself attempting to help a girl who doesn’t seem to have any past at all. The girl knows only one thing: she must reach a woman in Corpus Christi, Texas, hundreds of miles away, before the government agents who are searching for her catch up to them.
Award-winning author Rachelle Dekker throws you into the middle of the action and keeps the pressure on in this page-turning story that, asks Are we who the world says we are–or can we change our story and be something more?
Ohh the conflict. Ever have a read that you are so gripped by that you can’t put it down but at the same point some of the content was too much? That was this read for me. From cover to cover I couldn’t put this one down and I simply had to know what was coming next. The characters were complex and well developed. The plot moved quickly and there was the perfect blend of action and suspense. This novel had my full attention. My only complaint is that the violence was a little too much for me. There was a lot of killing and several instances of people being tortured. Some of it was expected but not quite the intensity of it. If you are okay with the violence then I would highly, highly recommend this one because the story was very well written and the suspense was palpable. Too bad this isn’t set to be a series!
