After years of suffering, the revelation that she is now pregnant with her abuser’s child was too much for Jessica Miller. She tried to end it all with a knife in the bath.
She was saved in time, but now Jessica is learning that survival is only the first step to healing. A mother and a small town who seem to care more about the impropriety of her condition than the horrors that caused it, an inability to share her feelings with the man she loves, and struggles both internal and external over the fate of her unborn child, conspire to crush her from all sides.
As events in her life grow ever darker, can Jessica find the strength to find her way toward the light and break a cycle of abuse? If she can’t, it won’t just be her leading a life of suffering this time: it will be her child.
Not all monsters are under the bed…
