    "Life was pretty good for Linda Greenlaw. Her job and her lifestyle gave her the independence and freedom she so craved, she had a good relationship, and a blissful quiet home. And then one day the peace she so craved and valued that was an integral part of life on her beloved island was shattered. Enter Mariah, the fifteen-year-old niece of an island newcomer. She was a troubled girl from a broken home. In a startling and frightening turn of events, Mariah revealed that she had been subject to grave abuses at the hands of her uncle and had to escape. Linda finds herself suddenly the legal guardian and de-facto mother figure for a surly, neglected, and deeply frightened teenage girl"--Provided by publisher.
