Mallory Hammond is determined not to let her boyfriend, parents, or anyone else get in the way of her #1 goal---to save a life. She had that chance when she was a teenager, and the opportunity slipped away, leaving a void she's desperate to fill. Then a new friend she met online offers her the chance she's dreamed of. But she'll have to leave behind everyone she loves to take it.
Tate Webber has loved Mallory for years. He understands that Mallory's free spirit has to fly, and when he gives her the space she needs, he hopes that when she lands, the two of them will be in the same place and can marry at last.
In a bold move---and with lots of resistance from Tate and those closest to her---Mallory decides to travel across the world to fulfill her dream. Tate begs her not to go, but Mallory embarks on the dangerous journey to Pakistan anyway, only to discover how swiftly and easily promises can be broken. Her new friend isn't who he says he is. And Mallory can only pray she'll make it out alive.
This is an intriguing book based on actual events, unbelievably intense, I read it cover to cover in one sitting. Whoever said truth is stranger than fiction was surely right about this one. The characters are certainly bizarre and put in jeopardy but it's all explained in the end.
Mallory is determined to do all she can to save someone's life even though it's dangerous. Things don't work out as planned and a great story begins. I'm so thankful Mallory made it out alright.
I received a copy of this book free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
