"Hodge took her readers to a rare journey that touches and break the hearts all at the same time through the eyes of Elena, the victim to whom the diary belongs. While reading, I could feel the victim's emotions pouring through; her sadness, frustration, anger and fear bundled into a giant seemingly endless burden. Hodge really did a great job in describing everything, no matter how explicit it was." -- The Bornean Bookworm
"Although the subject is a devastating one this story is beautifully written by Hodge. Hodge does a wonderful job, she manages to take you on this gritty journey leaving you breathless at the end. I highly recommend this novel! It is extremely moving, you will not be disappointed." -- Boekie's Book Reviews
"Heart wrenching and well written" -- Can't Put It Down
"This story is utterly heartbreaking. Some of the things that happen to Elena are truly horrific but somehow she never quite loses hope that she will be reunited with her daughter again. Being written in diary form I could see her in my head and I truly felt the things she was going through. I am not ashamed to admit I was in tears in places." -- Wistful Kimmie's Book Reviews
