Do you have secrets you’ve hidden away—secrets that would destroy the house of cards you’ve built?
Seduced into living the life her husband has built for her. Enwrapped in a family that is not hers. Stuck in a marriage that is literally killing her. Orphaned and broke, Sarah feels trapped in someone else’s life.

She’d finally hit Robert back. . . . ‘It was time, Sarah,’ she said aloud to herself. ‘It is the right time.’ She wasn’t sure she’d convinced herself, but she knew she’d had enough.
