I received a copy of this book for free, and I leave my review voluntarily.

“Someone, somewhere, knows the truth.”
Isabelle is searching for the truth. And her son. Her infant son was taken in the middle of the night, and she is determined to find him. Her past also haunts her because she has a secret that could ruin everything.
The twists in the book. Oh, Mylanta! This was such a free fall into absolute chaos, but when things hit the ground and settled- wow!
The character development in this book was phenomenal. The depth, delicacy, and detail were beautifully done.
I found the topics handled in this novel interesting, and the execution was fantastic. Isabelle is going through a lot, and many people will identify with her struggles.
Being a mom is hard. And I love that this book was as open and honest about the struggles of being a stay-at-home parent, and having your cried for help ignored and how dangerous and devastating that can be was portrayed.
I did not want to put this book down. It was a ride from page one. You will feel the weight of insomnia and guilt and the burden of the truth as you turn the pages.
This was beautifully written, and how this story plays out will leave you speechless!
