North Harbour, Newfoundland, 1894

Orphaned at a young age, Erith Lock has a cruel upbringing at the hands of a harsh stepmother. At the tender age of sixteen, a ruthless act leaves her shattered and struggling for survival. When all she has is her word, she makes a solemn vow to three small children. But circumstances drastically change, and the promise could take years to fulfill. She fears it might be better broken. When her past must be confronted, Erith finds herself facing unbearable choices that might cost her everything. Enduring self-doubt pushes Erith to her breaking point. Will she allow hope and kindness to guide her, or will it be safer to remain captive in the grip of her unfortunate past?

It’s challenging to try labelling Ms. Linehan Young’s novels. They contain suspense, mystery, and drama sprinkled with some historical references...The content is suitable for experienced young readers but mature enough for all to enjoy... Ms. Linehan Young’s writing abilities are going from strength to strength and there is no doubt in my mind that great things are in store for her readers with her next book.-- The Miramichi Reader --
A well written story that many will want to read in one night … just because the plot is that good-- Edwards Book Club Reviews --
