About

Living in the shadow of her perfect sister, Sarah Winston, 16, assumes she’ll never have a story to tell—-she expects nothing more than an average life, one gray day followed by another.

Until she wakes up in a room not her own.

Kidnapped by “Smiley,” a man seeking to create the perfect family, Sarah struggles to hold on to the faith of her childhood. Chained to a filthy bed in a cold basement, she’s tormented by the fear that Smiley killed Sam, her best friend, and her growing doubt that she’ll ever return home.

Sarah draws comfort from Emilia, her fellow prisoner, and a wolf who haunts her dreams.  But as violence and death surround her, Sarah asks how a loving God could allow so much suffering. Not even a miracle convinces her that He cares.

Will the chrysalis around Sarah’s heart ever shatter or will she be permanently trapped in a prison of her own making?
