Rachel Walker’s family and community have turned away from the world.
Every part of Rachel’s life is controlled, from what she reads to where she goes and what she wears. Her parents dictate how her life must be: marriage, modesty, children and obedience to her future husband. But when a former member of her community, a girl who escaped, moves back to her small Texas town, Rachel’s world turns upside down.
She realises that her life is her own. But can she find the courage to fight for it?
This is an emotionally intense and moving read, told from a first-person perspective.
