Marian Hardwick has achieved everything she ever wanted to become the most powerful woman in the country. She is admired by some, but seen as ruthless, calculating and manipulative by others.
Only two men really know her – her husband and her brother – but one loves her and the other hates her. When one threatens to destroy her by revealing a secret buried deep in her past, the other can save her, but first he must break her completely.
Marian’s life spins out of control as everything she ever believed in is exposed as a lie. If she is to survive, she must confront the greatest challenge to her sanity – the truth about herself.
Five Star Review on Amazon By Jabzz
I have enjoyed this book from the beginning! Love the way Hocking spins many tales together in such a sophisticated manner. I love the transformation of the main character as she comes to terms with really seeing herself for the first time. Wonderful. Can’t wait to read more from CA HOCKING.
