My pause spiked as I ran for my life alongside Zoe and Lucy. I had no idea who the bad guys were. Was it Lucy? The government agents behind us? Fast pace good! As I read along, I cheered each POV not knowing if they were trustworthy. Probably the best thrillers my hands has grasped this year. Outstanding job Rachelle Dekker, Five star quality all around!!
It’s kind of a spin-off of The Girl Behind the Red Rope by Rachelle and her father Ted Dekker. But this novel has nothing to do with a cult only in the sense that Zoe escaped it as a child and now has trust issues as an adult. Not a good quality to have when you need help to survive. 😉 It’s a stand-alone suspense with a bit of sci-fi and a lot action.
Zoe Johnson spent most of her life living in the shadows, never drawing attention to herself, never investing in people or places. But when a wide-eyed, bedraggled teenager with no memory walks into the diner where Zoe works, everything changes. Now, against her better judgment, Zoe, who has been trying to outrun her own painful memories of the past, finds herself attempting to help a girl who doesn’t seem to have any past at all. The girl knows only one thing: she must reach a woman in Corpus Christi, Texas, hundreds of miles away, before the government agents who are searching for her catch up to them.
Award-winning author Rachelle Dekker throws you into the middle of the action and keeps the pressure on in this page-turning story that, asks Are we who the world says we are–or can we change our story and be something more?
This book was given to me by Revell. The review is my honest opinion!
