A wonderful story with great characters. I felt like I was in Ballymacool. Michael Wray didn't want to go to Ballymacool. His parents insisted he go.
Brianna lived at Ballymacool all her life. She couldn't escape the cruelty she found there. I so desperately wanted to help Brianna. Her circumstances were terrible. Michael appeared and gave her hope.
Hope changes everything. It gives you the ability to withstand unbearable circumstances.
I rate it 5 stars. I received this book from the author to give a review.
