About the Book
Madora was 17 and heading for trouble when Willis rescued her. Fearful of the world and alienated from friends and family, she runs away with him, and for 5 years, lives in near isolation. When Willis kidnaps a pregnant teenager and imprisons her in a truck trailer behind their house, Madora is torn between her love for Willis, her fear of the world, and her sense of right and wrong. When a brilliant but troubled young boy enters Madora’s life, will she discover the personal and moral courage to free herself from Willis’ control and abuse, and stand on her own.
