To understand the truth, you have to start at the beginning...
Winter in Idaho. The sky is dark. It is cold enough to crack bones.
Jack Morton has nothing left. Nothing except for his younger brother, Matty, who he'd die for. And now Jack faces a stark choice: lose his brother to foster care, or find the drug money that sent his father to prison.
He chooses the money.
Ava Bardem lives in isolation. She's learnt from her controlling father that loving someone leads to pain and staying silent keeps you safe. Then she meets Jack and suddenly there's a glimmer of light through the darkness. But when Ava realises that her father and Jack are stalking the same money, she has to make her own wrenching choice: remain silent, or speak up in order to help the brothers survive against the odds.
NOTE : Violent in places.
The warm thread of hope that runs through this book makes it an excellent read. Poetic and thoughtful in places. Great characters, great story, well-written. This is an author to watch.
