When Kendall Berkely takes a look in the mirror, she not only desperately wants to run away from the stranger staring back at her; but she also knows that her days are numbered. She can feel it in her bones, and has the bruises to prove it. To make matters worse, Kendall will soon discover that her seventeen year old daughter, Diamond is on a path nearly just as dangerous. After the demise of the family unit she once knew, a distracted mother, and being forced to accept a new stepfather, Diamond finds herself knee deep in a multitude of mistakes. When Diamond finds herself more lonely than ever before she crosses paths with Bobby Lidell; a teacher’s aide with a dark side. Just as Diamond realizes that she is in over her head, her mother and father have already been notified, and will do everything in their power to protect her.But what is lurking in the shadows will not stop until a vow has been kept; what is lurking just beneath the surface will come seeking revenge.
One reviewer says:
“This is an excellent book and can be used to help others who may feel trapped in this type of situation. This was an inspirational story and I enjoyed reading this book. I know that many people who find themselves in these type of relationships are stuck in the cycle and hope that their partner will change, just like Kendell.”

How’d you do?

  1. I hope that other’s will read this book. It touches on subjects that most people aren’t willing to discuss. You did an awesome job connecting all of the characters and an excellent story line that is totally realistic.

    • Nearly more than anything else, I wanted to connect with the characters. So thank you for seeing that. God bless you, Christy

  2. Okay, that completely freaked me out…the story, I mean. The words? I’d probably misspell them all

  3. This sounds a little scary and quite intriguing! The spelling caught me off guard for a second though. Thought it really was going to be spelling test!
