"Have you ever done something you're so ashamed of that you lie to cover it up? Fabry explores that very human failing in this page-turning drama about long-buried secrets that become a 'prison' of memory. A follow-up to Every Waking Moment, his poignant story is driven by deeply drawn characters who evoke empathy and frustration, compassion and anger. But in the end, the painful labor of rebirth will bring tears of joy!"
— Christine, Fiction Editor, Christian Book Distributors
