An unspeakable evil visited Maria Vargas that warm summer evening, and her life was forever changed … Haunted by her rape and seeming rejection by God, Maria seeks a backdoor to forgiveness by rescuing an innocent from the clutches of fate. Kat Reed’s brush with fate was a bit more subtle. Following a disturbing sexual encounter, Maria’s skeptical sister-of-the-heart is pregnant and in mortal danger from Tio Sanchez, the malevolent Latino womanizer bent on hiding a career-ending perversion. Torn between Maria’s restored belief in life and Tio’s relentless pressure to abort, Kat struggles to preserve her right to choose … Will these two courageous women prevail in this epic battle between good and evil— or will desperation take its fi nal toll?
