Metal artist Katie Mack is living a lie. Nine years ago she ran away from her family in Raleigh, North Carolina, consumed by the irrational fear that she would harm Maisie, her newborn daughter. Over time she’s come to grips with the mental illness that nearly destroyed her, and now funnels her pain into her art. Despite longing for Maisie, Katie honors an agreement with the husband she left behind—to change her name and never return.
But when she and Maisie accidentally reunite, Katie can’t ignore the familiarity of her child’s compulsive behaviour. Worse, Maisie worries obsessively about bad things happening to her pregnant stepmom. Katie has the power to help, but can she reconnect with the family she abandoned?
To protect Maisie, Katie must face the fears that drove her from home, accept the possibility of love, and risk exposing her heart-wrenching secret.
Unfortunately, I was unable to finish reading this one due to work and personal commitments. Therefore, I feel unable to comment apart from to say that the short amount I managed to read was an extremely well written and thoroughly engaging story.

I would like to thank the publisher and TLC Book Tours for providing me with a digital copy to enable me to take part in this tour and to apologise for not being able to fully participate on this occasion.
