really liked it

More than anything, the start of the main character's recovery was such a complex, interesting, and heartbreaking story. The was it was written gives such a better perspective and context for understanding the aftermath of intense traumatic events. The kidnapping and torture was vivid and terrifying--I had to skim over parts because it's truly hard to read and realize that people actually do such things to other people. Powerful writing.

An advanced copy was provided by the publisher for an honest review.
