Publisher's Summary

Gabriella Harrison believes, as she is told, that she is to blame for her mother's rage - and her father's failure to protect her. Her world is a confusing blend of terror, betrayal, and pain. Her parents' aristocratic world is no safeguard against the abuse that knows no boundaries, and respects no person and no economic lines. Gabriella knows that, try as she might, there is no safe place for her to hide.Even as a child, her only escape is through the stories she writes. Only writing can dull the pain of her lonely world. And when her parents' marriage collapses, Gabriella is given her first reprieve, as her father disappears, and then her mother abandons her to a convent. There, Gabriella's battered body and soul begin to mend. Amid the quiet safety and hushed rituals of the nuns, Gabriella grows into womanhood in a safe, peaceful world. Then a young priest comes into her life.Father Joe Connors never questioned his vocation until Gabriella entered the confessional and shared her soul. Confession leads to friendship. And friendship grows dangerously into love...

Hate, love redemption and a happy ending against the odds

Good overall performanceI could not put this book down. It was tragic and I was affected by the abuse and at one stage I thought I could not go on. It was a book of sadness a woman fighting for her life against the odds. It's also a love story that shows relationships under the microscope. A well written book.
