ABOUT THE BOOK

If I’d had any idea what those words would mean to me, to my mother and daughter, I’d have fled California without looking back.

While driving a rural road, Hannah Shire and her aging mother, who suffers from dementia, stop to help a man at the scene of a car accident. The man whispers mysterious words in Hannah’s ear. Soon people want to kill Hannah and her mother for what they “know.” Even law enforcement may be involved.

The two women must flee for their lives. But how does Hannah hide her confused mother? Carol just wants to listen to her pop music, wear her favorite purple hat, and go home. And if they turn to Hannah’s twentyseven- year-old daughter, Emily, for help, will she fall into danger as well?

Pressed on all sides, Hannah must keep all three generations of women in her family alive. Only then does she learn the threat is not just to her loved ones, but the entire country . . .

My Review:
Hannah and her mom were headed home from a small vacation, she decided to take a road with a better view, so her mother who has dementia could enjoy it. Everything was great until Hannah seen a man laying on the ground on his back. Looking as if he had been in a car wreck Hannah ran to his side. Being a nurse, she tried to look for different signs of is health but he refused to let her. He tells her a few things but he just want her to tell anyone. Having to lie to the police wasn't the greatest idea but it's what her mom wanted.

Later on after bringing her mom back home, she has a surprise visit. These men are not really who they say they are, and Hannah may be in terrible trouble. Well, that would include her mom and daughter too. Will Hannah, her mom, and daughter be able to stay out of trouble and complete the mans finale wishes? Or will they only end up like the man?

**Disclosure** This book was sent to me at no charge for my honest review from CFBA.
