Publisher's Summary

Sticks and stones will break my bones, but words will never harm me. Lies. Words destroyed me.

"I'm sorry. She didn't make it."

"Daddy, he can't breathe!"

"There's nothing more we can do for your son."

Sticks and stones will break my bones, but words will never harm me. More lies. Those syllables and letters became my executioner. I told myself that, if I didn't acknowledge the pain and the fear, they would have no power over me. But, as the years passed, the hate and the anger left behind began to control me.

Two words - that was all it took to plunge my life into darkness.

"He's gone."

In the end, it was four soft, silky words that gave me hope of another sunrise.

"Hi. I'm Charlotte Mills."

10 "Phenomenal" Stars

Wow, just Wow! This book is simply amazing. 5 stars is not enough. This book will take you on an emotional journey. It is heartbreaking and it brought tears to me and my husband eyes. Especially the part when Travis broke down and said what was on his mind. What happened to Travis affected not only his parents but just about everybody in the book. I'm glad to know there is light at the end of the tunnel. Narrators did an amazing job. You could feel the emotions in the characters.

An Emotional Journey from the darkness into the light!

Aly Martinez!! This woman is one of my absolute favorite authors. She brings the angst like no one else.
In this second and final installment, I felt the gut punches left and right. Devastation, heartbreak, healing, happiness, love. It all consumes you from one page to the next.

At first I was so disappointed in Charlotte, keeping Travis from Porter. Her of all people knew what it was like to have her child ripped from her so for her to put Porter through that, it literally broke my heart into a tiny million pieces. I cried so hard during this book. Big, fat, ugly tears of heartbreak. It’s emotionally consuming and will drag you through the darkness but the light at the end of the tunnel is so bright that it’s worth every minute of it.
This was an exceptionally unique story as I’ve come to expect from this author. Her writing is breathtaking and comes from a place full of heart. Every minute, every chapter, every moment of this story was a journey through something beautiful.
Highly emotional.
Whole- Heartedly Captivating.
A Must Read Story that will move you on an entirely soul touching level.
Definitely recommend

Nelson Hobbs gives one of the best performances ever. Passionate, emotional and full of heart. The narration in this book is exceptional. Kasha Kensington was beautiful. She took on Charlotte’s character in both the darkness and the light. It was truly moving.

Beautiful Ending

I applaud Aly Martinez for the fabulous job she did writing such an emotional heartwarming story. I cried I laughed but most of all, l thank God for my children. I think that you will all really enjoy this book.
Aly did a wonderful job writing about a very tragic situation. Her courtroom drama was amazing. It was heart wrenching. I absolutely recommend this book.

WASN'T A FAN OF CLIFFHANGER, 2ND BOOK PURCHASE

I think when author's do this cliffhanger shtick, it's to line their pockets...along with the publishers. The two books in this series could have easily been one. I become irritated with authors who put dollars before readers... I wasn't too much of a fan of the heroine; she lacked a backbone. And I wasn't a fan of Tom because his character and personality were always changing. There's so much material between the two books that needs to be chopped; it's not needed in order to tell or carry the story. And I thought the ending was a bit over the top and excessive. I probably stayed with this book because of Travis. Some have stated they cried when listening, but this book didn't pull at my heart as much as it irritated me in parts. I'm on the fence with this one. But I do appreciate that at least the author included a storyline.

Empathy

This is the 2nd book of the duet of Dr Charlotte Mills angry and terrified.

It's 10 years later and she meets Porter Reese son Travis, only to discover Travis is Lucas. Enter a police investigation, custody concerns, hot heads, lies, lawyers and chaos. Travis is the only one that seems to have a voice of reason among all the adults.

This book with make you laugh, and empathize with all the characters Aly Martinez brings to life. It's unfortunate that kidnapping happens in today's society and with the narration of Nelson Hobbs and Kasha Kensington, makes you feel the pain, and the thought process of all touched by the tragedy. The great thing is, in this story there is a HEA.
