The secret she has carried with her for the past thirty-two years, one that has shaped her life and tainted others, must be exposed and laid to rest. Most of all, justice must be served and Ann knows just how to make that happen
M.T Mathieson writes a sad tale of childhood sexual abuse its aftermath and how it shapes a child into adulthood. 30 years later, Ann is a fearful mess, she doesn’t trust men, she doesn’t trust the world, or her children’s ability to trust their own instincts as she tries to protect her children from the dangers of the world and everything and everyone in it, she is alienating them from it, and herself. It all boils down to one person who destroyed her innocence and its time he pay for his crimes. I thought it was beautifully written, without being explicit or graphic in details, she writes of Ann’s pain and how one person can ruin ones soul if you let them. This is definitely not a happy ending type of story but the author does a really good job conveying the thoughts and feeling of her characters and you have no problem understanding and empathizing with them.
