A young girl, raised in a brothel, goes away to school, determined to escape once and for all her scandalous past, create a new identity and lose "the darkness" that seems to live within her family tree. All of the Pierron woman have been hookers, sinners, evil, and Hope Pierron is determined to break the cycle. Hope tosses away her past like a bad dream, and eventually gives birth to her own daughter. More than ever she is determined that the legacy of darkness will not inhabit her daughter, and what follows is a story of terror and suspense, well-written and enjoyable at the same time. The interwoven love story is moving, the plot enticing, and the the whole book a fabulous read.

I know a lot of people like Spindler and that there are a large number of copies of this book circulating, but I was disappointed in it. I found it cliched, trite, and so moralistic that it was stupid.

The cover synopsis did not do it justice. I found myself almost immediately wrapped into the story. A young girl, raised in a brothel, goes away to school, determined to escape once and for all her scandalous past, create a new identity and lose "the darkness" that seems to live within her family tree. All of the Pierron woman have been hookers, sinners, evil, and Hope Pierron is determined to break the cycle. Hope tosses away her past like a bad dream, and eventually gives birth to her own daughter. More than ever she is determined that the legacy of darkness will not inhabit her daughter, and what follows is a story of terror and suspense, well-written and enjoyable at the same time. Read Glory's story (Hope's daughter)and find out if she's able to escape "The Darkness". The interwoven love story is moving, the plot enticing, and the the whole book a fabulous read.

This book was good, but I didn't think it was as suspenseful as Spindler's other "thriller" novels. This had more aspects of a romance novel with a little mystery thrown in. The characters were great though... Hope St. Germaine is downright frightening as a super-strict mother with a shocking secret.

I really liked this book and would have given it 5 stars if it would have ended a little differently. I don't want to give away too much so I won't say any more, but it is still worth the read!

Very good, but not her best. Kind of slow, but she really gives you a character to hate, and 2 to root for.
