Growing up poor in rural Georgia, Bree Cabbat was warned by her single mother that the world was a dark and scary place. Bree rejected her mother’s fearful outlook, and life has proved her right. Having married into a family with wealth, power, and connections, Bree now has all a woman could ever dream of: a loving lawyer husband, two talented teenage daughters, a new baby boy, a gorgeous home, and every opportunity in the world. Until the day she awakens and sees a witch peering into her bedroom window—an old gray-haired woman dressed all in black who vanishes as quickly as she appears. It must be a play of the early morning light or the remnant of a waking dream, Bree tells herself, shaking off the bad feeling that overcomes her. Later that day though, she spies the old woman again, in the parking lot of her daugh­ters’ private school . . . just minutes before Bree’s infant son, asleep in his car seat only a few feet away, vanishes. It happened so quickly—Bree looked away only for a second. There is a note left in his place, warning her that she is being is being watched; if she wants her baby back, she must not call the police or deviate in any way from the instructions that will follow. The mysterious woman makes contact, and Bree learns she, too, is a mother. Why would another mother do this? What does she want? And why has she targeted Bree? Of course Bree will pay anything, do anything. It’s her child. To get her baby back, Bree must complete one small—but critical—task. It seems harmless enough, but her action comes with a devastating price, making her complicit in a tangled web of tragedy and shocking secrets that could destroy everything she loves. It is the beginning of an odyssey that will lead Bree to dangerous places, explosive confrontations, and chilling truths. Bree will do whatever it takes to protect her family—but what if the cost tears their world apart?

Character Development

I don't know what I was expecting except that I knew it would be good because well, Joshilyn Jackson. This is darker than I thought it would be. That wasn't a bad thing. It really drove the story and had you sitting with fear in the pit of your stomach, waiting. Bree's baby son is kidnapped by a woman she swore was a witch looking in her window. This woman has revenge on her mind and she doesn't seem to care who gets hurt, which is horrifying, especially when you read what she has already done. Bree trusts Marshall (who didn't love Marshall?) and they begin investigating and planning on how to get baby Robert back. Bree has to do things she doesn't want to but won't a mother do anything for their child? Isn't that what the old woman is doing? Her husband's past comes into play and we have quite the roller coaster ride. I haven't read a Joshilyn Jackson book that I haven't liked. I thoroughly threw myself into this one, even through parts that made me feel so sad. Your nerves will be on end even though you are hoping that it ends in the way you want. And it is quite the ending.
