Editorial Reviews

Booklist
“[Benson’s] themes will resound with many readers and her portrayal of a newly reformed, albeit occasionally backsliding, sinner is masterful.”
Victoria Christopher Murray
“A wonderful twist on a story that’s as old as the ages—conflict and competition between siblings—with scandal and suspense added to the mix. An entertaining, enjoyable novel that deserves to be on every bestseller’s list.”
