Emma is married to Jared, a man she soon discovers is an abusive, twisted man with an evil streak. Jared believes he is in complete control of his household and family and no one should interfere. He justifies his abusive ways by quoting and twisting biblical passages, stating he is the head of the house. When Emma finds a way out and begins a job as a cook on a river boat, Jared is furious and is determined to make her pay...once he can get past the captain, her uncle, and the other men on the ship in order to get to her.

This book was highly suspenseful and I was fidgeting in discomfort as Jared slips aboard the ship and goes after Emma...
