For overprotective parent Alyson Ward, any time her daughter, Lyla, is out of sight is reason to panic. So it’s a big step for her when she lets Lyla attend a sleepover at her cousin’s house. Comforted by the knowledge that her sister, Tricia, is the chaperone, Alyson does the one thing she never thought possible: she lets go and trusts that her daughter will be safe.
But Alyson’s sense of peace is short lived. When Lyla comes home the next morning, she reveals something that could tear apart not only their family but also the entire community. Now, Alyson and Tricia must confront their painful shared past as they come together to help a little girl who they fear might be harboring terrible secrets similar to their own. Will the sisters be strong enough to face their demons in order to protect the child, even if it means telling their most private truths?

This book is powerful, touching, real to life and emotional.  It was compelling and brilliantly written and one that I will not soon forget.  I finished the book a few days ago and I cannot stop thinking about it.  That to me is sign that a book touched me, made me feel both the story and the characters!  I was already of fan of Holmes, but after this she may become a new favorite!  5 stars!!!
