The Lost Daughter

Books of the Month - <b>September</b> eBooks of the Month Family Drama Relationship Stories

LoveReading View on The Lost Daughter

February 2009 Book of the Month.

Comparison: Jodi Picoult, Joshilyn Jackson, Jacquelyn Mitchard.

Now Timothy Gleason is facing the death penalty, and she has another choice to make. Tell the truth and destroy her family. Or let an innocent man die to protect a lifetime of lies…
