Force to go to a place where he would not think to look for her she is force to reconstruct her life to the point to where she does not even make contact with her mother directly. Senetra recreates whom she is to name herself Regina Novak but when she meets someone who is close to her home state she finds herself retreating but not before, she finds herself curious about him and with that little bit of curiosity he breaks through the wall she has put around her heart.

Not before, she opens up a lifeline that provides extra opportunity for Senetra to learn how to love again.

Candice Poarch writes an excellent story that teaches us that learning to love is something that is hard once it has been broken. I love how Candice bridges families together and bring them back to become one and how she takes us on a visual tour of Alaska.
