The author of The Deep End of the Ocean delivers a compelling, emotionally charged tale of tragedy, revenge, and redemption.

Twelve-year-old Veronica Swan’s idyllic life in a close-knit Mormon community is shattered when her two younger sisters are brutally murdered. Although her parents find the strength to forgive the deranged killer, Veronica is unable to do the same. Years later she sets out alone to avenge her sisters’ deaths, dropping her identity and severing ties in the process. As she closes in on the murderer, Veronica will discover the true meaning of sin and compassion before she makes a decision that will change her and her family’s lives forever.

    " For some reason, I had a hard time getting into this book ... picked it up a week ago and read a few pages and then put it down. Finally picked it back up ... and I ended up liking it. It was interesting to read such a controversial plot about a Mormon girl. Reminds me that we're all "regular" people. "
