From the moment Maddie buried her parents, she was alone. No close family, no siblings, no aunts, uncles, cousins, no one. The only blood relative she had left was a half-brother who didn't know she existed.
Maddie had already decided to look for her half-brother, but when she is stripped of her virginity in a brutal rape, she goes on the run. The man who raped her has other plans for her, and she doesn't want any part of it. After months of hiding out, she heads to Allenby, the hometown of her half brother.
One thing Maddie doesn't expect to find in Allenby is love.
