Ella Webb was never destined to be free.

When she turned sixteen, Ella's present was an engagement to Dean, her childhood best friend. 
Desperate for time to get out of her arranged marriage and live the life she wanted, she bargained for a three-year reprieve to go and get an education before marrying Dean when she graduated.

Falling in love with someone else was never Ella's intention. Yet she allows herself to fall deep into the rabbit hole of forbidden love and hidden family secrets that Ella wished had stayed buried, but might be the key to setting herself free.
