When Evelyn Johnson married the man of her dreams, she had no idea five years later she’d be running from a nightmare.
When her abusive husband leaves for a fishing trip, Evelyn takes the opportunity to escape. On her own, scared, and hurt, she crosses paths with a police officer, Chris, and his no-nonsense grandmother, Lou.
Finding refuge on their farm, she’s given the opportunity to heal, both physically and mentally. Then her relationship with Chris takes an unexpected turn, and she’s left torn between her growing bond with him, and her fear of the violent man she left behind.
In the end, Evelyn is left with two choices—run to keep herself and her friends safe or face her husband, so she has a shot at a future.

This story is wonderfully written and nearly impossible to put down once you begin reading! The characters are well thought out and the story is one that tugs at anyone's heartstrings who knows the story all too well in real life! Do yourself a favor and buy this book!
This book is an absolute treasure. It's neither sensationalist nor lurid, but still manages to quietly convey the despair and terror of domestic abuse. Evelyn is a magnificent character and those she meets along her escape are so well drawn that we find ourselves falling in love with them right along with her.
The central romance is so touching and amusing that the looming shadow of her husband makes us fear for their happiness.
I loved this book and can't recommend it highly enough.
