CeeCee Wilkes is a naive and needy 16 year old, having lost her mother and lived in foster homes, when she meets charming and handsome 22 year old Tim. He sweeps her off her feet and manipulates her into becoming part of a kidnapping plot with resulting long term consequences. This decision results in CeeCee living a secret life for the next 30 years. CeeCee becomes mature and achieving Eve who is a wife, mother, and therapist in her new life. The years go by and events reach a point where the truth needs to be exposed; she needs to face the consequences of her actions taken as a teenager. This is a fascinating and believeable story which I could hardly put down until coming to the last page. This is one of the best books I've read this year.
