Gilly Soloman has been reduced to a mothering machine, taking care of everyone and everything except herself. But the machine has broken down. Burnt out by the endless days of crying children and menial tasks, and exhausted from always putting herself last, Gilly doesn't immediately consider the consequences when she's carjacked. With a knife to her throat, her first thought is that she'll finally get some rest. Someone can save her for a change.

But salvation isn't so forthcoming. Stranded in a remote, snowbound cabin with this stranger, hours turn to days, days into weeks. As time forges a fragile bond between them, she learns her captor is not the lunatic she first believed, but a human being whose wasted life has been shaped by secrets and tragedy. Yet even as their connection begins to foster trust, Gilly knows she must never forget he's still a man teetering on the edge. One who just might take her with him.

Listener Opinions

    " Megan Hart draws me deeply into her diverse stories and makes me feel unexpected emotions in unconventional circumstances. I have read many her books and this is not what I expected. I think I got Stockholm Syndrome from this book. It was different and I truly enjoyed it. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sarah | 1/26/2014

    " This is a beautifully written, disturbing story of a typical mother's disturbing kidnapping. It was similar in tone to Room by Emma Donoghue (another dark kidnapping ordeal). I have a feeling this one will stick with me for a while. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 William Rains | 1/16/2014

    " I got this book free in a good reads giveaway. I thought this book was OK. I had a pretty good idea what was going to happen at the end...But i was Wrong. I thought Todd was the best character in this book.I found him to be Hilarius. The plot of the story was well thought out. It kept me well entertained all though out the book. I would recommend this book to anybody who is a fan of Megan Hart. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Karla Dao | 1/10/2014

    " As I stay at home mom I related to this book right from page 1, it was kinda amazing to be truthful. Never ran into a book like that. The end really got to me, but a mom has to do what she has to do! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Andrea Rinard | 1/6/2014

    " I thought the premise was intriguing, but the plot dead-ended with about 100 pages left and just staggered to its inevitable and ridiculous conclusion "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joann | 11/20/2013

    " LOVED this book! Just started reading this author and will continue to read all her books! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Yvonne | 8/24/2013

    " Man, I was so twisted after reading this. I knew the ending was coming and helpless to stop it. It amazed me how Ms. Hart was able to bring sympathy for the abductor and somehow wish for his happiness as well. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jill Lynn | 8/11/2013

    " i enjoyed this quite a bit. It was unique, and the author did a wonderful job with slowly creating sympathy for the abductor and with writing the MC's deep point of view. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amy McAllister | 6/15/2013

    " What a weird book...that I couldn't put down. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Julie | 4/22/2013

    " Well, this book was definitely different. I can't say that I've read anything like it before. I didn't really get into either of the characters and just didn't feel that it was realistic. I wish they would have found out more about each other that would have given us a different ending. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stacey | 11/8/2012

    " Interesting character read...I knew there wasn't going to be a whole lot of action, but I was ok with that. Nicely written, I enjoyed it. Although the end was somewhat inevitable. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Gaurett | 8/9/2012

    " I waited awhile to get this book. It had lots of good press but it was just too sad for me. Well written but too sad. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michelle Taylor | 4/8/2012

    " Even though this book only revolved around two characters, kind of like Stephen King's Misery (minus the horrific mutilations) it never seems slow. It truly shows what a woman will do for the love of her children and how we all have an inner strength. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Susan Buist | 12/17/2011

    " really dumb storyline...incredulous! Not recommended at all! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Eileen Dent | 6/10/2011

    " Listened to this book via Audible.com (edition not available). I'm not sure enjoyed is the right word for this book, I feel haunted by it. I think good stories should leave something behind when you invest the time in them, and this one certainly has. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Hilary Carter | 6/1/2011

    " The writing and story line kept me interested, which kept me reading. The characters were true to themselves through out the book, they may not have behaved the way I wanted them to, but in retrospect their behavior was consistent with their personalities. I waver between 3-4 stars. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Renne | 6/1/2011

    " Heartbreaking. Hart is an excellent writer...even without the sex. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Silva | 5/30/2011

    " A TSTL heroine forced me to quit reading at about p.57. Very disappointing since I usually adore this author's books. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jamie | 5/23/2011

    " I thought this was a very good book until the end. Was so upset about that book I didn't start a new one for days. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Beckey | 5/15/2011

    " This isn't like her other books but still just a good!
    I purchase an extra copy at one her book signing for myself. Very nice author. Just looked a bit lost at the signing.. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Yvonne | 4/28/2011

    " Man, I was so twisted after reading this. I knew the ending was coming and helpless to stop it. It amazed me how Ms. Hart was able to bring sympathy for the abductor and somehow wish for his happiness as well. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Marianne | 4/26/2011

    " To me this had so much promise, however I found it boring and anticlimatic. It just went on and on and the plotline to me suffered. I would not recommend it and actually would like my time invested in reading this trash returned! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Marie | 4/8/2011

    " This is the first book i have read of Megan Hart and i loved it. It is a great read, and it gets you thinking of what you would do in her situation. The only reason i did not give this book 5 stars is because i did not like the ending. Other than that i loved it! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Wendy | 3/27/2011

    " I bought this book on a whim, even had a different one in my arms. I am soooo happy that I put the other one back. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lynn | 3/21/2011

    " I enjoyed the book but did not enjoy all the cursing. "

    " I waited awhile to get this book. It had lots of good press but it was just too sad for me. Well written but too sad. "
