Invisible Girl: A heartbreaking page turner with an unexpected ending

Free sample

A heartbreaking story of family secrets from the USA Today bestselling author of Gracie’s Secret. Perfect for fans of Jodi Picoult and Diane Chamberlain.


I know you. I know you in a way you can’t even imagine. I have been searching for you in the years since you wrote that letter – the letter that told me you were looking for me too. But now that I’ve found you, I don’t know if I can tell you the truth of what happened. It would ruin your perfect life. It would risk your beautiful daughter.


So, I watch and I wait – longing to protect you from what’s to come. This morning, you’re running late and your little girl, tugged by the hand, scurries to keep up with you. She’s clean but a little scrawny. Maybe that’s because you struggle with the bills; maybe she’s just made that way.


I know what it is to have lost a precious child. I pray you never learn how that feels. But try as I might to shield you, I can’t hold back the past forever… when I finally tell my secret, will it break you like it did me all those years ago?
