Ashlyn went missing when she was just fourteen and, after months with no leads, was given up for dead. Now, five years later, she's been rescued, but the Ashlyn who comes back to Broken River is a different girl from the one who left. Hardened, angry, damaged, and confused, Ashlyn fights to find and save the little girl she once was.

Meanwhile, her once-best-friend, Ruke, has spent the last five years fending off  suspicion that he had something to do with Ashlyn's disappearance. 

When the two reunite, the story they left unfinished begs to be rewritten. But in a pile of ashes, is there anything left to save?

This sounds like it is going to be an excellent novel. Can't wait to read more!

I just love how you used an excerpt from Hamlet, which is my favourite Shakespearean play...
Okay. Really unrelated but I did Gertrude's monologue (^^^) in 3rd grade. 😂
