Adela never imagined her life would end here: alone in a filthy spare room with a bucket for a toilet after days on days of torture.
But she can wait a few days for her captors to tire of her-or she can save them the trouble. Not that they left anything for her to use for those purposes.
Of course, a third alternative might exist. She knows the nephew of this house's owner, after all...
For everyone who believes in hope in the darkest of places-and unexpected allies.
