This was a great story by an author I haven't read before. You meet Ben and Kaitlyn and immediately know that something isn't right in their marriage. These two lives interact with several others, all of whom are involved in some way in a massive accident on the Ohio Turnpike. The story weaves a web of how each of these people is affected by Ben's attitude. I enjoyed this author and look forward to reading another story.
There are several stories here and although initially, I thought it was going to be too much, it somehow blended in well.
We have Adanya an officer of the law. Her story is separate. We have Kaitlyn whose story is quite separate. Kaitlyn is married and on the surface, everything seems fine. Her husband is a twisted abusive who has no qualms about hitting her at every turn, even in the past to force a miscarriage.
Adanya has a heavy secret. When she was a teenager she had a baby, she gave the baby away for adoption, a decision tinged with deep regret and sadness.
Kaitlyn had a great love in Adam who went to Afghanistan and then she got involved with her husband to her deep regret. Now that she has conceived again, she is determined to run away, create a new identity and bring up this baby alone. All that changes when a grievous accident affects the lives of all of the above.
In twists and turns, some plausible, some slightly not we are taken into the next step of both Adanya and Kaitlyn's lives - thank goodness for the better and happier.
One horrific accident will change the lives of five people in this epic story. Kaitlyn and Adam were in love back in college and planned to have a life together. Ben, on the other hand, wanted Kaitlyn for himself and plotted to break them apart. It didn't take much since Adam was on his way to Afghanistan to fight in the war. Through dear John letters he wrote on behalf of the other he flawlessly broke them apart and married Kaitlyn and her nightmare began. Moore is one of the officers that was called to the scene and Leah was a nurse working at the hospital. Moore found a man trapped under one of the cars and with the help of firefighters got him to safety. She found a wallet and thinking that it belonged to the man pulled from the wreckage, called Kaitlyn informing her of the car pile up on the expressway and to come to Ohio. When Leah makes a mistake with one of the patients from the crash, lives will be changed and loved ones restored. This is an amazing story that will have you on one emotional rollercoaster as you peel back the layers of the story as it unfolds before you.
