About this ebook

The #1 New York Times-bestselling author of Identity presents a suspenseful new novel of tragedy and trauma, love and family, and the evil that awaits.

As they do each June, the Foxes have driven the winding roads of Appalachia to drop off their children for a two-week stay at their grandmother’s. Here, twelve-year-old Thea can run free and breathe in the smells of pine and fresh bread and Grammie’s handmade candles. But as her parents head back to suburban Virginia, they have no idea they’re about to cross paths with a ticking time bomb.

Back in Kentucky, Thea and her grandmother Lucy both awaken from the same nightmare. And though the two have never discussed the special kind of sight they share, they know as soon as their tearful eyes meet that something terrible has happened.

The kids will be staying with Grammie now in Redbud Hollow, and thanks to Thea’s vision, their parents’ killer will spend his life in supermax. Over time, Thea will make friends, build a career, find love. But that ability to see into minds and souls still lurks within her, and though Grammie calls it a gift, it feels more like a curse—because the inmate who shattered her childhood has the same ability. Thea can hear his twisted thoughts and witness his evil acts from miles away. He knows it, and hungers for vengeance. A long, silent battle will be waged between them—and eventually bring them face to face, and head to head...

I can pick up any Nora Roberts book and know it will be good. My all time favorite author does it again in this novel. I fell in love with Lucy immediately. It reminded me of visits to my own grandmother in Maine. Nora's realistic writing and ability to evoke emotion make for the best scenes. At first it is warm like a family hug and you are smiling right along with the kids and grandma. I love that she was also a Momma Bear when it came to the kids. She fought for them out of love and it was a beautiful thing. Then it turns to fear as the story unfolds for Mom and Dad and the killer who paints a target on a couple without even realizing that he has it all wrong about them. Lucy and Thea have a gift. I love that this special gift is the key to justice. I love that it unites a family and heals them. I loved how strong Thea is. She could fight in mind and develop herself to fight with her body as well. She is a great inspiration for girls and women.

This thrilling, suspenseful love story really had me on the edge for the first third of the book. It was crazy how scary parts were. I just adored the life Thea was building. I cannot imagine going through life with the special gift she has. I just loved how her and Ty got together, along with Bray. Add in Thea's dog, Bunk, her best friend Maddy and the entire town of Red Bud Hollow and it makes for a wonderfully written story.

Nora Roberts has outdone herself with this newest book. All the feels are here and I admit, I cried, laughed and felt the true, bright love wrapped in this story along with a side of her signature magic. A definite “do not miss” read. If you love Ms. Robert’s past books, you will not be disappointed. If this is your first Nora read, an excellent place to start your journey.
