Recent high school graduate, Crimson Sage lived the all-American suburban life in Virginia—until her perfect world is shattered. Now Crimson and her little brother are forced to leave the only home they’ve ever known to move across the country with a grandfather they’ve never met. Anger, fear, and depression become her constant companion as Crimson tries to deal with not only the death of her par-ents, but the truths she learns about herself—that she’d been conceived in an un-solved rape. Crimson would have continued her downward spiral if not for Josiah, her grandfather’s foreman. Josiah is a force to be reckoned with and refuses to allow Crimson to self-destruct.
As Crimson rediscovers who she is and what she’s truly made of, she finds strength, love, and acceptance in the arms of Josiah. And she’ll need every bit of it, because in addition to facing the ugly truths about her past, Crimson must also face some new challenges—one that wants to destroy her budding relationship with Josi-ah; and another that wants to destroy Crimson herself.
