Will we know when our salvation has arrived?

Medora Welles makes a number of life altering decisions one worse than the last. She finds herself at the age of 17 going with a man she thought was her salvation. Willis came to her in the darkest moment of her life and provided a light to freedom.

What Medora viewed as freedom was anything less than imprisonment but she never saw it as anything but a man loving her too much. Even when another woman is forced to live as a prisoner Medora still believes everything Willis tells her. Willis has dreams for them, goals of lofty aspirations, and life beyond the isolated dump they are presently living in. Willis repeatedly tells Medora he is saving her and working to save the woman, he currently holds prisoner.

Through the love of a dog and the curiosity of a 12 year-old boy Medora starts to question her life and the choices she has made. She now sees that beyond not being her guardian angel Willis may in fact be the exact opposite. How do you escape from the hell that is your life if you have nowhere to go and feel there is no one who cares about you? For Medora she may have someone that is missing her, and there is someone who wants to help her escape. The question going through her mind is after all these years does she even remember her name.

This book is such a compelling read that you have to keep reading to see how everything turns out. The story is one that has you looking around at every stranger wondering if there is some secret lurking in that person’s life.
