Lena Hunter is not under the influence of drugs, nor is she out of her mind when she aims a pistol at her grandmother’s heart and seals her fate by pulling the trigger. She might very well think about her actions later and wish that she had done things differently, but the fact that the old woman is dead is her one true victory. Through eight mind-numbing years of imprisonment, it is the only thing that makes any sense to her, the only thing that makes it all worthwhile.
Too many years of sharing a tragic past makes Lena and her sister Victoria closer than close, and together they are strong enough to stand up to their grandmother when the time comes. Together, they have the strength to refuse their grandmother’s one constant and sickening request, which is for them to be quiet “good girls.” They find the courage to move on and carve out lives for themselves. Vicky is a successful nurse practitioner, and Lena is a computer geek and the mother of a perfect six-year-old little girl. Carrying family secrets around on her own shoulders is one thing, but the prospect of the load being shifted onto her daughter’s innocent shoulders is quite another. The mere thought of it is what ultimately sends Lena rushing over to her grandmother’s house with a loaded pistol—an act that changes her life for better, for worse, and forever.
Author Terra Little challenges those brave enough to step inside of Lena’s world to answer one burning question: What would you have done?
