CHERYL HOLT delivers the thrilling and dramatic final novel in her acclaimed ALWAYS trilogy? Rebecca Blake Carter saw her world fall apart when she was just three years old. Her parents died, and she was sent to live with her greedy, horrid relatives. They always made sure she realized she was a terrible burden, and she's lived a true Cinderella existence. She's constantly riveted by odd dreams that remind her of a prior period in her life, one where she was surrounded by people who loved her. Who were they? And how could she find them again? Raven Shawcross also saw his world fall apart when he was a small boy. His father was duped in a confidence scheme, and his family ended up losing everything: their property, their reputation, their good name. His parents died of shame, and he vowed to avenge them by retrieving what was wrongly taken by their enemies. He's spent his life, preparing for the moment when he will finally be able to deliver the justice he's dreamed of having. But when he meets Rebecca, he's disturbed to find that there are other things in the world worth having besides retribution. True love just might be the best ending of all.
