About the Author
Krystal Wade is happily married to the love of her life (don't gag) and raising three beautiful children in the gorgeous state of Virginia. They live just outside Washington, D.C., and every day she wakes up to find herself stuck in traffic trying to get there. The horrid commute gives Krystal plenty of time to zone out and think about her characters in full, brilliant details (she's a safe driver; don't worry). Stories give her a way to forget about the sometimes smelly strangers sitting next to her on the fifty mile trek into town (she picks up hitchhikers every day. True story. Check out www.slug-lines.com if you don't believe us). Krystal has been a part of organized hitchhiking for nearly fifteen years, but that's just one small aspect of her oh-so-large life. When she's not working, commuting, or chasing after her three children (four if you count the man), you can usually find Krystal outside talking to her chickens like they're the cutest things in the world (they are), or training her amazing dogs how to herd said chickens (which they love), or curled up on the sofa with a good book (why can't that be 100% of the time?).

This is the first book that I've read by Krystal Wade, but I will definitely be going back for more!
This story isn't about some deep, riveting love that overcomes all obstacles. Its not about a cunning and clever heroine with a pension for making broody men fall for it. Its not even about triumphing over evil, or seeing the good in others. Its about learning your own mind, seeing your own worth and value, and being able to say when your just messed up. Its about overcoming your own limitations, learning to accept help, and learning when to deny help that's offered.
Rose and Phillip are amazing, but the character that truly shined for me was Underwood. He was an immensely difficult character to pull off, and I must admit I had a little crush. She truly executed him to perfection, and he helped build the other characters so so so well.
Please note, this book does contain dark elements especially involving mental diseases. If this does not bother you, then I highly highly highly recommend it!
