This is the dark, short story of a chance encounter between two young women that will forever change their lives. At the age of seventeen, after surviving a heartbreaking, soul wrenching childhood at the hands of a monster, Francesca Wright finds herself drugged out of her mind and playing the whore in a house of sin. Libby is a young woman who's been through it all and came out the other side stronger than ever. By chance she spots Francesca in the whore house. Immediately she's drawn to the dainty, blue-eyed girl with the face of an angel. She wants nothing more than to take her far away from the hell hole she's in and keep her safe. Being the strong, stubborn, determined woman that she is, she sets about making Francesca's escape a possibility. Through death, horror, and heartbreak an unshakeable bond stronger than blood is forged between the two. *Warning* Intended for mature audiences only. Not suitable for readers under the age of 18.
