At seventeen, the night of her mother’s funeral, Grace Adams
is attacked. It is not the first time, and a brutal crime ensues.
And to everyone’s horror, Grace will not tell the truth. She
is a young woman with secrets too horrible to tell, with hurts so deep they may
never heal. She is also beautiful enough for men to want her no matter how much
she does not want them. Whatever the outcome, Grace Adams will have to live
with whatever happened during those terrible years. After a lifetime of being a
victim, now she must pay the price for other people’s sins.
From the depths of an Illinois women’s prison to a Chicago
modeling agency to a challenging career in New York, Grace must carry the past
with her wherever she goes. And in healing her own pain, she reaches out to
battered women and children who live a nightmare she knows all too well.
When Grace meets Charles Mackenzie, a New York lawyer, she
has found a man who wants nothing from her—except to heal her, to hear her
secrets, and to give her the family she so desperately wants. But, with

is at her most vulnerable—in danger of losing everything to a vicious tabloid
press and an enemy from her past, an enemy bent on malice at all costs.

betrayal, and to transform a lifetime of pain into a blessing for others.
