No matter how fast or far you run, your past will follow. Three years have passed, and Ally's memories of her kidnapping and torture still haunt her. Determined to keep her demons at bay, David refuses to leave her side. Until.... The lies woven to protect come unraveled. Ally has no choice but to return to the land that once imprisoned her. This time, instead of the sociopath who tormented her years ago, she faces his angry brother. A brother whose thirst for vengeance threatens to destroy everything and everyone she holds dear.
Angst, action, sorrow, and hope
Full of angst and action, this thriller is another epic page-turner. Ally once again faces her fears in this sequel but this time to save those she loves rather than herself. I appreciated the back story of David and Ally and enjoyed getting to know them as a couple. His steadfast loyalty and love gave her the courage to face the horrifying events she thought were behind her.
Ally is given a rare opportunity of redemption and grabs it with both hands. Kishan Paul maintains a true, believable heroine who swallows her uncertainties and forges ahead with intensity and determination. The reader will cheer for her small successes and cry along with her bouts of sorrow and loss.
Shiromi Arserio did a fantastic job on this sequel. I thought she was even better than in the first installment, The Second Wife. She knew the story better, understood the characters and added another layer to this amazing book.
The Widow's Keeper resonates with the anguish of "what-ifs" that are sometimes more horrific than reality. Yet in the end, we smile with Ally as we realize there is always hope for that second chance.
