Three years later, Allyn is still a prisoner in her own home held captive by harrowing fear. Broken and damaged, Allyn seeks help from someone that fate brought her.

Can Allyn overcome the broken?
Contains distressing content. Only suitable for 18+. Standalone.
Allyn is twenty when her life takes a horrible turn. She shouldn’t have survived her abduction, but she did, well sort of. Her heart beats, her lungs take in and expel air, but is it really living when you haven’t left your house in three years?
Dominic is a well renowned psychologist. He’s credited with helping people who have been through extreme trauma. Luckily for Allyn, she caught a show profiling some of his recent patients.
This is the first book by Margaret McHeyzer that I’ve read, and I can say without a doubt that I just became a HUGE fan!!! When I read the blurb it immediately caught my attention. I don’t know why, but I like dark reads involving abduction so I signed up to review it. I am SOOO glad I did. This book was absolutely incredible!! Watching Allyn move through her stages was heart wrenching but beautiful at the same time. The OMG moment was the icing on this book cake.
GREAT JOB Ms. McHeyzer. I’m going to go get more of your books. I give this book 5 stars with 2 hands down the pants!!

There's something about the written word that is pure magic.
Possibly it's the fact there are 26 letters in the English alphabet, and they can create something so beautiful or so empowering they're capable to change our lives.
How important is it that we break suit and stretch our minds?
I like to think of myself as 'unique'. My stories aren't for everyone, and sometimes I may push what you believe to be 'normal'.
Normal is subjective.
I prefer to be known as a person who's never been 'bound by custom' but is 'unique by choice'.
I hope you do read and enjoy my stories.
