An Emotionally Addictive Page Turner! A young mother and her 4yr old child used as pawns in the power struggle between a barracuda of a mother and her angry, resentful son. I found myself shedding angry tears and cursing out loud at the plight of Laura and her son Gabriel and cheering on Andy in his efforts to right the wrongs instigated against Laura by his mother. This is one story that lingers long after the last page!
