About this ebook

When teenager Allison Glenn is sent to prison for a heinous crime, she leaves behind her reputation as Linden Falls' golden girl forever. Her parents deny the existence of their once-perfect child. Her former friends exult her downfall. Her sister, Brynn, faces whispered rumors every day in the hallways of their small Iowa high school. It's Brynn—shy, quiet Brynn—who carries the burden of what really happened that night. All she wants is to forget Allison and the past that haunts her.

But then Allison is released to a halfway house, and is more determined than ever to speak with her estranged sister.

Now their legacy of secrets is focused on one little boy. And if the truth is revealed, the consequences will be unimaginable for the adoptive mother who loves him, the girl who tried to protect him and the two sisters who hold the key to all that is hidden.

And don’t miss Heather’s latest book, AN OVERNIGHT GUEST! You’ll be chilled and riveted from start to finish with this story of an unexpected visitor and a deadly snowstorm!

This book was stupid. I knew there would be a twist, I just didn't know it would be so twisty and weirdly written and hideous. Let's add more young women to the story... that way the reader can really wonder who the mother is. Holy shit, SO ANNOYING.

This is one heart wrenching story, told by four women that do not seem to be connected besides the two sisters. I cried through most of the book, and was totally shocked by the ending, i never would have thought that it had turned out that way.

This could have been a good story but there were things in the story that just didn't add up to the realities of the time frame it is told in. The writing, itself, I thought was just "okay" not great. I wouldn't bother recommending it to any of my reading friends though.
