Rose desperately wants to escape the abuse of the father who impregnated her and the dark spirits that haunt her life. Being thrust from Georgia 1961 into the era of Salem’s infamous witch trials isn’t what she had in mind, and now her daughter is left hopelessly out of reach.

The only way to return to her daughter is by facing certain death to banish the dark spirits that plague Salem. If she doesn’t eliminate these dark spirits in time, they will destroy civilization and trap her in this strange new place, ages away from her daughter.

Even if she can complete the task in time to return home to save her daughter, there’s still one problem: she’s falling in love with a man who can’t return with her. Achieving her goals will force her to choose between the only man who has never betrayed her and a daughter she can’t quite remember but will never forget.

A heart-wrenching tale of a mother’s love for her daughter, this romantic paranormal fantasy underlines the depravity of both historical and modern society while capturing the essence of sacrifice and devotion.


TRIGGER WARNING: This book deals with the sensitive subject of sexual abuse. There is a thread in the Come, the Dark forum at the bottom of this page discussing the issue and how it is handled within the book.

EXCERPT

My eyes tear and my throat closes up. I avert my gaze and shift in my seat; I don’t deserve her kindness. My head throbs with the idea that I need to get back to Anna, but that Verity needs me, too. I can’t just leave her, not until I know she’s safe. She’s one of the few people I’ve ever been able to count on.
Her time is running short. My heart beats rapidly unevenly in my chest, and it’s hard to breath. Pulling air into my lungs feels like breathing in needles. I smile, hoping Verity won’t notice my trembling hands or pick up on my strained breathing and erratic heartbeat.

I don’t want to spook away her friendship, so I won’t tell her what I’ve seen. That won’t help anything. I keep my mouth shut and look at Verity as though there is no Mort looming behind her, though I vow to myself that I will find a way to save her.

“Are you all right, Abigail?” Verity asks. “You’re so tense.”
I clear my throat. I can’t think straight to politely end our time together, so I walk toward the door and say, “I’m so glad you stopped by, Verity.”

She takes the cue, edging toward the exit.
“It was nice to see you,” Verity says slowly, stepping out the door. “If you need anything--”
“Thank you, Verity,” I say. “I’m just...so tired.”

I close the door and lean back against it, hating myself for the way I handled the whole situation.

As soon as the sun sets, I need to seek out William and Tess. I cannot wait for them to come to me. Verity needs my help, and for so long as I am trapped here, I will do everything in my power to protect her.

DREAM CAST



MY THOUGHTS ~ 5 STARS!

First let it be said that I don't like to give away spoilers if I can keep from it, I apologize if this review seems vague. This is one of those exhilarating nail-biting edge of your seat kind of books. I love the Forever Girl series! Rebecca is such a remarkable talented writer. I will always read her books no questions asked, because I know they will be amazing. I felt so bad for Rose/Cordovae throughout this story because the one thing she wanted more than anything was gone and she had to fight before she could get it back, and fight she did. She fought like hell, and never gave up! I love the characters in this book, and how we get a chance to see certain ones that we already know way back before Sofia is even born. As this story goes on and Cordovae begins to have feelings for William I can see how hard it is going to be for her to leave him. All the twists and turns really kept me excited and wanting to find out what was coming next. I can tell you one thing for sure, the ending is so incredible! The way everything turned out, I was NOT expecting THAT, but OMG I LOVED it! I cannot express how unbelievably amazing the Forever Girl series is, you just have to read it for yourself. MUST READ! I must add something about the trigger warning that is on this book, the abuse that takes place is not detailed, the story starts AFTER the abuse has occurred. There are NO graphic descriptions of the sexual abuse!
