Review: First of all l would like to say a big thank you to Shannon Condon for sending me her book and giving me a chance to read it. I was sent this book in exchange for a honest review. I am glad this book is on my bookshelf. I would tell people that you should step out outside your comfort zone with books because it is good to add more authors and genres to your reading portfolio even if you do not read books like this. I normally do not read book of this genre but l stepped outside my comfort zone with authors and genres l am so glad l did because l have read so many great books. I highly recommend this book. I would love to read more from this author. I was sent this book by bostick communications who l want to say a big thank you to as well. The author is really nice. I was intrigued by this book. Maggie sounds like a great lady l was sad to read that Maggie's mother and Father passed away and she was a orphan now. Maggie traveled the world with her parents. This is a great story and this book will have you on the edge of your seat. You will cry tears of sadness and joy. I really wonder how Maggie survived after everything she has been through l fell in love with this book after reading the first few pages. They're 323 pages in this book. This story will have you hooked and wanting to read more about Maggie and it did not take me long to read this book. 

Star Rating: 5 out of 5 stars
