The truth doesn’t always set you free.
I don't know if it's appropriate to say I enjoyed this book, but it was a very compelling read. Once I started reading I couldn't put it down. I had to know what was going to happen to Annie.
This was a very dark read. It had a lot of violence and rough language in it. If that's not something you can handle, this is not the book for you. She spent a long time in the hands of a sadistic captor and the book is her retelling of the events to her therapist. She's understandably bitter about what happened during and after her time away.
This was a debut book by Chevy Stevens and I was impressed. I'll be looking for the next book by this author which will be Never Knowing coming out next summer. In looking at the summary, I think that one will be as dark and moody (and right up my alley) as this one.
