Review by: E M McIntyre on March 11, 2017 :
I could not put this book down. The characters are beautifully developed. My heart ached for Lacy and her mother, and at times, I wanted to reach into the pages and give the loathsome Sheriff a walloping. Five thumbs up for this superbly written, intense novel.

Review by: Phyllis Entis on March 11, 2017 :
A powerful story.

No one messes with Sheriff Peter Waldrip. He has the mayor of Diamond Springs - a small town situated two hours from Las Vegas - in his hip pocket, along with just about every judge in the county. It’s little wonder that the entire population of Diamond Springs looks the other way when Sheriff Waldrip abuses his wife, Brenda, and his sixteen-year-old daughter, Lacy.

The abuse has been going on for as long as Lacy can remember; indeed, even before she can remember, as Waldrip’s abuse of Brenda is almost as old as their relationship. And, recently, the beating are increasing in frequency and intensity as Waldrip’s drinking spirals out of control. Lacy’s future looks bleak until Jake - a mysterious boy who no one else can see or hear - enters her life, and Dr. Allen Petoro enter’s Brenda’s.

Author Victoria Schwimley has hit a home run with her compassionate telling of this story of a mother’s and daughter’s search for the courage to escape from a lifetime of abuse, and their struggle to create a new life of hope for themselves. I highly recommend this book to teens and adults alike.
