5.0 out of 5 stars dark and compelling,but beautiful 1 Mar 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
this is a very dark and compelling centre's around paedaphilia,child prostitution and basically learning to live again. it tells a story of a women who runs off with her child looking for a better life and what she finds is sex and drugs.her daughter is used to satisfy the needs of others whilst her mother dies of drugs.all through this her father has been looking for her and after many years eventually finds her.Now a women in her own right she finds it difficult to adapt to a normal life and struggles with her feelings for a friend of her father.they all set about trying to bring to justice those who inflicted this cruelty upon her and others who suffered at the hands of these men.Ms Sala deals with this subject beautifully,it has been carefully written with the victim in the for-front of your mind and while the story line is one which would frankly scare the living daylights out of all parents, it manages to bring love and hope to a very touching story.It takes a very diligant author to touch this topic and make somthing dark into a rather wonderful love story.
This is a book which made me cry not only for what she and others have suffered but because there is very real love in this story.Be prepared for a frightening journey in this dark story but do read it.Well done to Sharon Sala.

I have re-read this book under The Purple Room in paperback so many times it has broken I re purchased it again and I still enjoy this book even though it makes me tear up - I think this is one of the best Sharon Sala has written and I have nearly every book she has written mainly in paperback I enjoy re-visiting every one again and again

4.0 out of 5 stars Loved it! 26 Oct 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
It took me a couple of seconds (while browsing Sharon Sala releases) to remember which story this way, but when I did it instantly all came back.
As a child Jade's mother left her well rich husband, taking her small daughter with her and joined a freakin cult! After years of abuse and fear she finally managed to leave with her best friend. A man who was kind and loved her like no other, sacrificing his own life to keep her safe, warm and fed.
Now, Luke, has found her! Luke know's his friend Sam would do anything to know what happened to his precious daughter and have her close to him again and Luke can't believe it! What he also can't believe is that he has more than casual feelings for her and want's her for his own.
Now with her father back on the scene and a man she doesn't know quite what to do with, Jade has bigger problems. The bad guys know where she is and want her back.

I happened to love this story and while I couldn't empathize with what Jade had gone through I could sympathize. Another reviewer said she was childish and all me, me me. I say 'And?' a man has come into her life and threw everything up in the air. He's telling her she's got a dad and wants to take her there. She feels that with her friends declining health and knowing it's only so long before someone finds her that she doesn't have much of an option.
Luke, god bless him, didn't seem to understand that sometimes a girl just needs room to breathe! How would anyone react if all this was shoved on her and it seemed he expected her to just slide right into her old life. Also the one time he does actually snap at her, is kind of the one time I really was on her side.
Someone I did love was Sam.
