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.
