Eve and Joe were determined to save Cara as well as adopt her. Cara had become very close to Jock while in Scotland, he was like her big brother. Cara was three when she and her sisters were kidnapped but eventually Cara was able to escape.

I just couldn’t get into this story. I read over half of it and it didn’t hold my interest. Maybe because Natalie is responsible for the death of a couple of her daughters and was using Cara for her own advantage and keeping Cara in check by thoughts of hurting the few Cara loves. I know this is fiction but when you use children being killed or hurt by this parents just isn’t my thing. I have read books where the kids get away and continue their story but this just didn't grab hold of me.

I received an ARC of this story for an honest review.
