Publisher's Summary

Sticks and stones will break my bones, but words will never harm me. Lies. Words destroyed me.

"I'm sorry. She didn't make it."

"Daddy, he can't breathe!"

"There's nothing more we can do for your son."

Sticks and stones will break my bones, but words will never harm me. More lies. Those syllables and letters became my executioner. I told myself that, if I didn't acknowledge the pain and the fear, they would have no power over me. But, as the years passed, the hate and the anger left behind began to control me.

Two words - that was all it took to plunge my life into darkness.

"He's gone."

In the end, it was four soft, silky words that gave me hope of another sunrise.

"Hi. I'm Charlotte Mills."

An Emotional Journey from the darkness into the light!

Aly Martinez!! This woman is one of my absolute favorite authors. She brings the angst like no one else.
In this second and final installment, I felt the gut punches left and right. Devastation, heartbreak, healing, happiness, love. It all consumes you from one page to the next.

At first I was so disappointed in Charlotte, keeping Travis from Porter. Her of all people knew what it was like to have her child ripped from her so for her to put Porter through that, it literally broke my heart into a tiny million pieces. I cried so hard during this book. Big, fat, ugly tears of heartbreak. It’s emotionally consuming and will drag you through the darkness but the light at the end of the tunnel is so bright that it’s worth every minute of it.
This was an exceptionally unique story as I’ve come to expect from this author. Her writing is breathtaking and comes from a place full of heart. Every minute, every chapter, every moment of this story was a journey through something beautiful.
Highly emotional.
Whole- Heartedly Captivating.
A Must Read Story that will move you on an entirely soul touching level.
Definitely recommend

Nelson Hobbs gives one of the best performances ever. Passionate, emotional and full of heart. The narration in this book is exceptional. Kasha Kensington was beautiful. She took on Charlotte’s character in both the darkness and the light. It was truly moving.
