Fewer things are more terrifying than the prospect of having your child taken from you, and living their life like Jaycee Dugard did for many years. Living in a squalid basement, birthing a child, and living in the confines of four small walls until one day the opportunity presents itself to run away and make a clean break. Is anything ever really wrapped up that pretty? No, of course it isn't. Just as in life, fiction also allows us this glimpse into the darker shades of humanity, the ones we don't even realize are there until it may be too late.
Escape was just the beginning.
Held captive for eight years, Lily has grown from a teenager to an adult in a small basement prison. Her daughter Sky has been a captive her whole life. But one day their captor leaves the deadbolt unlocked.
This is what happens next... to Lily, to her twin sister, to her mother, to her daughter -- and to her captor.
The synopsis is short, sweet, and to the point, and just enough to intrigue the reader.
