Hope Wellman (20) having lived through sexual abuse as a young girl, by her step-uncle, Lucas, has never said a word about her ordeal to anyone. And now at Lucas’ funeral she feels an inner-relief that he cannot harm her again. The only doubt that she does have is that his body is not in the coffin as it was never recovered from his boat accident. Without his body, there is a fraction of her that wonders if he is still alive, and when she has moments of feeling that somebody is watching her, she instantly thinks it could be him.
There are a string of events that come to light early in the story that keep reminding Hope of her past and begin to create the mystery for the remainder of the story. One of the main questions you’ll be asking is whether or not Lucas is still alive?
Hope is having terrible nightmares about being chased by someone, and then when she is out she feels like someone is following her, watching her at times. This makes her question her own sanity – she may be paranoid, unless she does have a stalker, or maybe it really is Lucas? There are some brilliant twists in the story to keep the reader wondering and guessing.
The reader is aware of how Hope feels about Lucas’ death as it opens her mind up to those moments of abuse again. She puts on a brave face for her parents, to offer support and to keep her ordeals to herself.Read more ›
While attending the funeral of her abuser she still doesn’t feel safe. With feelings of being watched and an increasing feeling of being followed she wonders if it all just a trick of her mind.
Can unlocking the secrets of her memories help or lead to something more terrifying?
This is an intense story of emotional survival.
How do you ever come to terms with having your innocence taken away?
So many questions arise when reading this book.
As a Mother of 5 beautiful children I was sceptical about starting this book, I though it may have been too heart breaking, with credit to the author it is written in a delicate way designed to make the reader think rather than shock with graphic detail.
Hope is a character that I really felt for. I understood her struggle to develop personal relationships, I understood her reasoning behind not wanting to talk about her horrific past and this I attribute to the incredibly detailed writing by this author.
There are moments in this book where you begin to question your own opinion of certain characters, you begin to piece your own puzzles together by asking your own questions about Hope’s story.
This book is full of twists and strong characters that can carry the mysteries of this story.
It will tug at your heartstrings and make you think about the darker aspects of humanity.
I thoroughly enjoyed this remarkable story.

If you are being abused, get help. The most dangerous people in the world are not always strangers. The scariest things are not those that can kill you, but those you survive. The most horrible possibility is not what could happen to you, but what you could become.
Hope Wellman believes her terrifying past with its nightmares and real and present dangers ended with Lucas Wellman’s funeral service. The abuser who robbed her childhood of innocence is gone. She can finally begin a new, safe life. Or can she? Those she loves are being targeted…by a dead man?
When she learns the truth, will she heal? Or will mental illness overtake her?
