|From The Publisher*||A dark, shocking, and unputdownable thriller debut about a mother and daughter-and the lengths to which a daughter will go to find independence.|
There is always a special bond between mothers and daughters-but sometimes it goes horribly wrong.
For eighteen years, Rose Gold believed she was chronically sick. She thought she needed the feeding tube, the surgeries, and the wheelchair. She thought her mother, Patty, was her guardian angel. Turns out her mom is just a really good liar.
Patty was sentenced to five years in prison for mistreating Rose Gold as a child. When Patty gets out, Rose Gold, now a grown woman, decides her mother has paid her dues and invites Patty to move in with her. After all, Rose Gold is a mother herself now. She has a beautiful baby boy, so she understands how tough parenting can be. And Patty claims all she wants is to reconcile with her daughter and help care for her brand-new grandson.
But Rose Gold knows her mother so very well. Patty won't rest until she has her darling Rose Gold back under her thumb. Which is a smidge inconvenient because Rose Gold wants to be free of Patty forever.
Who will get her way? Mother or daughter?
And in the end, what will that mean?
