That’s how long I've been here. Captive. Frightened. Alone.
The little human contact I receive is not what I crave. It's not a friend’s comforting arm or my mother’s swift kiss. It's rough contact—forced, and familiar for all the wrong reasons. I don’t want him there, but I’m powerless to stop him. He says that he owns me and that I am his.
“Emmy,” he calls me. That’s not my name, but as more time passes I’m starting to forget things.
What is my name? Where am I from? Who was I before I came here?
That’s how long I’ve known Callum, and already, I trust him with my life. I was so sure I would never crave another man, but he challenges everything I thought I knew— everything I felt.
He says that he’ll save me. I believe him.
He calls me “Leila.” It sounds like a name that belongs to me and it reminds me of a past I was starting to forget.
The escape is planned and my fate is in his hands, but if this doesn’t work, what will become of me?

Wow ... just ... wow. This book is unlike anything I've ever read. It's dark, twisted, heart-wrenching, but hopeful & beautiful all in the same. This story isn't for the faint of heart. It's very raw and has detail of rape. It's very tastefully done and not too graphic in my opinion. If there's one word that I would use to describe this story it's HOPE.
Callum hasn't been home in years and when he makes an unexpected visit to his father's house he's confronted by a foreign woman holding a knife. He quickly learns that this woman is being held at the house against her will in the house he grew up in ... the events that follow make Callum realize the facade he always knew existed about his father is actually true. Leila thought she was dead, not physically but mentally, she had no reason to believe her life would ever change but then Callum came home.
Give this book a try, I almost plead that you do. It's a story that stays with you but not in a bad way even though much of this story is anything but pleasant. As I mentioned above, if you have hope, even the darkest of nights will turn to morning and a new day.
