Summary: Lexi is a just a woman who is trying to pay the bills and raise her daughter the best she can. But when her estranged husband returns to reclaim his family, he brings heap loads of trouble with him. Lexi fights to keep her daughter safe from their terrible past as well as the supernatural forces working against them.
Review: Erin Healy writes an intense read that keeps the reader on the edge of their seat. The plot is fast paced, although it can be overwhelming at times. There is a lot of action and emotion but also a touch of supernatural and spirituality at the core of this tale. The characters are flawed with buckets of secrets and misunderstandings between them that lead to unlikely choices. At the heart, a novel about forgiveness and redemption that I recommend. Rating: ***1/2 out of 5.
