She had been Carrie Lee and now she was Shannon Lee Burton and she was twenty six. Shannon’s best friend and colleague was Angie. The man in black had rescued Shannon from the orphanage that Shannon had been at since she was four and had been being raised to be a child bride. Shannon had been twelve when she was rescued but the man in black put her in Bush School for Girls when she had run away from the foster home he had put her in and she had been twelve. The man in black said he was Reddy Burton and he was her father when he had rescued her. Shannon had met Angie at the school and they had become best friends and combated the other girls teasing them. Reddy showed up at Shannon’s graduation from U C Berkley. Shannon’s graduation gift was a down payment for a house but he was to build a workshop in the basement of the home. Angie also came to live with Shannon. Then the CIA came to visit Shannon to do an intelligence job to find Reddy who had been an agent and came up missing. Then Reddy and Shannon go to a cabin of his friends for the summer to bond. Reddy also wants to bring his daughter together and teach them and his associates to survive in his world. I lovethis story. I didn’t know much about child brides I vaguely knew they existed but more in the Morman thing with Warren Jeffs I believe his name was. But i did absorb the information given to me and on Korea which I didn’t know anything about. This story sucked me in from the start and kept me there until the last page of it. I loved this story though some of it was sad as with the child brides. I loved the ins and outs of this story. I was happy Shannon had someone as she grew which was Angie since she really basically didn’t have any family her father dropping in every now and then but other then that no one. I loved the ins and outs of this story and I highly recommend. I received an ARC of this story for an honest review.
