Rating: 5 Cups
Carrie Lang is living a nightmare. Sentenced to ten years in prison for a crime she did not commit, somehow she must overcome her gut-wrenching fear. As she acclimates to her new reality behind bars, she learns some tough lessons just to survive.
Jillian Duke is serving a life sentence in the same institution. She is quick to realize that Carrie is the perfect pawn in her secret plan.
Carrie and Jillian engage in a struggle that eventually ends in a surprise neither suspected. Never would Carrie have guessed she would be called upon to pit wits against such a devious, conniving opponent – but Carrie, it turns out, is a very fast learner.
This book took me on a wildly emotional ride as I rapidly turned the pages until I had consumed the entire book down to the final satisfying sentence. The story is told in a straight-forward, matter-of-fact way that, for me, makes Carrie’s internal angst all the more powerful and believable. I feel like I was there with her, surrounded by dingy gray walls and cold steel bars. The various character interactions are portrayed realistically. All have well-defined motivations, and it was quite easy for me to picture the on-going action like a movie in my head. Speaking of which, this story would make an awesome movie! Highly Recommended!
