Having a child at seventeen years old was never part of Adelina's plan; but when she found out she was expecting a child by her best friend, life as she knew it, changed. 

Quinn was eleven when she was told John was not her father. She wasn't surprised, and she was even less surprised when her mother told her that her 'Uncle' Isaac was actually her biological father. 

It had been a year since Quinn had disappeared without so much as a note the day after she had turned sixteen years old. Her disappearance had taken its toll on Adelina, and her marriage, which was already on the brink. She had just about given up hope, when a surprise on the internet leads her to believe that her daughter was alive and in what she would consider a worse fate than death.
Adelina's discovery leads her to question exactly how well did she know her own daughter?
