Review
  • Lexi is doing her best to raise her daughter, Molly, by herself. With her husband in jail on drug-related charges and her father in a mental institution, she has no one to help with the finances. Although she works nights in a greasy spoon and days at a grocery store, she can’t even afford rent for her rundown apartment or the utility bill. In fact, things are so bad that despite the freezing weather, she and Molly are sharing a pair of gloves. Just when it looks as though life couldn’t get any worse, her husband’s sadistic drug dealer shows up, demanding money owed him and implying that inaction on her part will result in malicious acts against her and Molly. Healy sets up such a brutally hopeless scenario, readers will wonder if there’s any way out for Lexi. It takes a long time, but miracles can and do happen in this faith-based thriller. Fans of Ted Dekker will appreciate Healy’s chilling story of the dangers on the road back to hope and faith. -- Mosley, Shelley (Reviewed 05-15-2010) (Booklist, vol 106, number , p)
  • Seven years ago, Lexi's husband, Grant, abandoned her, leaving her to raise their daughter, Molly, on her own. Suddenly, Grant is back. He wants to start a relationship with Molly, but events surrounding his reappearance lead Lexi to believe that he is putting them all in grave danger, and she refuses to let him see their child. VERDICT Healy, who is best known for her suspense novels cowritten with Ted Dekker (Kiss; Burn ), tries her hand at writing a suspense novel tinged with elements of the supernatural that will appeal to readers who like to be on the edge of their seats. --Nanci Milone Hill (Reviewed April 15, 2010) (Library Journal, vol 135, issue 7, p68)
