The Boy In The Barn
by Ciana Stone
Release: January 24th 2020
Publisher: Original Syn
Fear. That’s what comes to mind when Sophie thinks of her childhood. Fear. And pain.
She ran away from home to protect her unborn child. Now, twenty years later, she’s a woman who learned to put the past and its dark secrets behind her. To stand on her own and to build a good life for herself and her son.
But the past is not yet done with her and those dark secrets rise from the grave. Her courage, and the strength of her love will be put to the test. What’s on the line is everyone she loves.
It’s flight or fight and this time she won’t run.
Wow what a book! This was a darker book than I thought it was going to be and from the start I was hooked.
This really is a dark and twisted book, and there are quite a few triggers – physical and sexual abuse, torture/murder and it also deals with child abuse and sex trafficking. This book is not for the faint of heart, but I have to admit though it may be dark, the characters were strong and the story fast paced and honestly had me hooked.
I found Gideon/Samuel hard to stomach, with good reason since he was at the forefront of the abuse to Sophie growing up and also the continuation within his cult like status of being Father. Despite all the evil within the pages, there is a love story blooming in the dark and that alone was enough to keep the dark at bay just enough. Thinking the father of her son had given up on her all those years ago they reconnect by a fluke chance when her son Cole joins the SEALs academy, I could see where the story plot was going to with this, and loved that Ciana Stone managed to make this a HEA.
The Boy in the Barn was my first book by Ciana Stone and it definitely will not be my last!
