Anna is a possession. She is owned by the man named Will, shielded from a struggling world by his care.

Anna is obedient, dutiful, and compliant.

When Anna finds the strength to run, she leaves her name behind. But in her new idyllic town, the past-and Will-catch up with her.

Carrying a child and a dark secret, she must face the scars he gave her-and learn to be everything Anna was not.

Publisher Review

"Gripping, compelling, highly emotional." -- FanFiAddict * FanFiAddict * "You'll experience every single emotion. There are moments of joy in the book, moments of love and laughter... the darkness is lit by those moments, and it is as dark and unforgiving as Cormac McCarthy's 'The Road'." -- Fantasy-Faction * Fantasy-Faction * "It is brutal and honest and brave beyond measure. It will pull your emotions every which way, so expect to have quite the book hangover when you're finished..." -- Shona Kinsella, BFS Reviews -- Shona Kinsella * The British Fantasy Society * "A personal story of female resilience." -- Publishers Weekly * Publishers Weekly * "The tension lingers right up to the very end of the story and it is not just Anna who the reader ends up fearing for." -- The Fantasy Hive * The Fantasy Hive * Selected for LoveReading 'Indie Books We Love' "A gritty, intense and powerful read." -- LoveReading * LoveReading * "[A] hard-hitting feminist fable" -- The Times * The Times *
