At seventeen, the night of her mother's funeral, Grace Adams is attacked. It is not the first time, and a brutal crime ensues. And to everyone's horror, Grace will not tell the truth. She is a young woman with secrets too horrible to tell, with hurts so deep they may never heal. She is also beautiful enough for men to want her no matter how much she does not want them. Whatever the outcome, Grace Adams will have to live with whatever happened during those terrible years. After a lifetime of being a victim, now she must pay the price for other people's sins. From the depths of an Illinois women's prison to a Chicago modeling agency to a challenging career in New York, Grace must carry the past with her wherever she goes. And in healing her own pain, she reaches out to battered women and children who live a nightmare she knows all too well.

amazing book. it was extremely touching i would recommend it for anyone 16 and up; as the details gets graphic. The protagonist Grace Adams is raped repeatedly by her father who is assisted by her mother and she shoots and kills him, resulting in jail for Grace. Thats all im going to say for now but i would give this book 10 stars if i could. AMAZING READ
