After only 3.5 hours and two bathroom breaks I read the best book of 2011. This book is so emotionally charged! The realism in how quickly a life can be shattered. As a voracious reader, I rarely find a book that I read so fast with my heart pumping so fast to find out what happens next. I felt like everything depicted was happening to me. this is an excellent must read, but be sure to have a few hours to devote to the book and the book only because it is too thrilling to stop.

Absolutely FABULOUS book!!! I think this is her very BEST book I have read so far!!! Kudos to Fern Michaels for writing such a compelling book! I feel just as Marianne said in her "review" ......this book was so amazing that I did not even want to put it down for a moment as I had such a rush of adrenaline going thru me to race to the end of the book and see how it would end! Get this book! You won't be sorry!!!

This book has totally wiped me out with emotions, from hurry to flip the page, to tear jerking love, to sadness and back all over again from the start. I am an old Fern Michaels reader, but above all books she has written this is the BEST. It is so good it is draining on the soul and i loved it! The story of Sara, a 12 year old who is spoiled so badly she has mental problems, by a very disfuntional mother, and a somewhat "goes along for the ride to keep peace" father. She accuses her Uncle of sexual abuse and the war is on. Lives are ruined and the fight of a life is in balance...but you have to read the story to see who's life it is. Ups, downs and twists and turns make this a very emotional read. Ms Michaels 2011 novel-- and this, her, "best" will be very hard to top.

I absolutely loved it... This book will make you a fan of Fern Michaels. It's the type of books you won't be able to put down, you want to keep reading to see what else happens. Just when you thought okay this is what's going to happen it does a complete 180 and you'll be like didn't see that coming... I would recommend to anyone who likes a good read...

At 374 pages this book was a very quick read. If I didn't have so many distractions it could have been read in one day rather than two. I came across this book when looking at the newest reviews. It sounded like something I would read so I requested the book and I'm glad I did.

The beginning is a little slow at first but quickly picks up the paces and has you at the edge of your seat for the rest of your read. You really feel for Kate as she is going through what must be hell for someone in their position.

Kate and her husband Alex have a kennel for breeding dogs which used to belong to Kate's parents before Alex purchased it from them. Her parents pass from a terrible car crash before they have the chance to see their daughter and Alex become a couple and get married. Alex's best friend from grade school visits him and his wife often with their two daughters Emily and Sara. Sara is totally spoiled beyond belief and it's no wonder how she turned out the way she does. Emily is the oldest and is nothing like her parents where as Sara is the spitting image of her mother.

Sara accuses Alex of molesting her and that's when Kate and Alex's hell begin. Sadly Alex's best friend Don doesn't believe him despite the fact that he knows his daughter is a lying little brat. I don't want to go into more detail as that would give away to the book but it really does get good from the time the trials begin till the ending of the book that have surprises in between.
