Loretta Marion's debut novel takes the reader on a reckless detour to backwoods Maine, where many dark secrets lurk. You'll stay up late reading this page-turning, suspense filled tale of a woman on the run.
Cordelia Richmond's dream for a new life with her toddler daughter and a streetwise canine companion named Handsome quickly turns into a nightmare when they become stranded on a secluded farm with a witch-like hermit living off the grid.
Each day seems interminable in the company of the peculiar recluse who begins to come undone by their presence. With no means of communicating with the outside world, the need to escape intensifies but is further complicated when the local sheriff and a nosy reporter start poking around.
Long buried mysteries emerge and Cordelia's appearance is the catalyst for unraveling them, placing her and her daughter in grave danger - and leaving her regretting the trail of lies she left behind.
