But when the baby won't eat and she and Justin argue, she ends up alone in a small town. As the baby becomes sicker, Evie must decide whether to admit her mistake and turn herself in, or to keep running.
To start this review I am going to say that the author and book are good.
I liked the story line but was a little slow reading in some areas. The characters for the most part were believable an well written. The plot was left with a little bit to desire.
As a mother I could relate to not being able to leave a child with strangers, especially if I was suspicious of them. There was suspense, mystery, love and more with in the pages of author Darlene Ryan's book.
I will be checking out more of this author and will checking to see what other genres she may have.
And so due to the above I am giving this book as of now a Breath of Life Rating of:
Four Clock Rating!!!Disclosure: I did not receive this book in exchange for my review. But the opinions are mine, your opinion may differ, and that is fine with me.
