    I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book for my honest opinions I grew up in a small community theres nothing like it, yes unfortunately some people do turn a blind eye but not all Well written plot, combining family, love and romance, with doubt and vulnerabilities I was captivated to the last page.
