Ever since watching her father die and being held captive by his killers, Hanna refuses to talk....until the day she meets Claire Rodriguez at a park and sees her own pain mirrored in Claire's eyes. With Claire's help, Hanna begins to make progress until her mother whisked her away to a remote little town in Maine, changing her name to Molly. Still unable to shake her fears, seventeen year old Molly now talks but refuses to leave the wax museum where she and her mom work and live. When a chance encounter brings Claire back into her life, will both of them find the healing they need?
This book is one of the best I've read in months. The characters are amazingly well-developed with layers of pain and healing that slowly unfolds throughout the flashbacks and current events. Parrish does an incredible job drawing the reader into Hanna's world of fear and capturing Claire's stifling grief.
I could go on and on about how good this book is and still not really cover all the aspects of what makes this book stand out from the others. It's a must-read for fans of Christian Fiction. This is the first book I've read by Parrish, but I am ordering her other books today.
I was given this book in exchange for my review. My thoughts are my own.
