The Lovereading4Kids comment

From this highly acclaimed author comes a haunting 19th century story of loss and revenge, the power of friendship and the power of forgiveness. Inspired by true events, The Runaway is a beautifully written, compelling story of transforming darkness into light. Megan is a healer, yet when she cannot save her young brother she punishes herself until ultimately she herself is healed and friendships are renewed. With richly drawn characters and a well plotted story, this title is equally compelling as her first novel The Tide Turner.

A deserted almost derelict house; the perfect place for so many secrets. And Tom, biding his time, waiting for the right moment to bring this fragile world crashing down...
