Can You Ever Escape Your Past?

At eighteen, popular Ivy Griffith likes nothing better than getting stoned with her boyfriend, Pete, and his basketball buddies-until one afternoon when a nightmare unfolds. Ivy watches in horror as her boyfriend and his friends murder a teammate and bury his body in a remote location. The four friends make a pact to keep the killing quiet, and Ivy flees her parents Colorado home for college and never looks back.

Now, after ten years of numbing her guilt with drugs, shes finally clean. The single mom of a seven-year-old son, Montana, Ivy returns home to the tiny town of Jacobs Ear, hoping for courage to reveal the shocking truth of her past and be rid of this baggage forever.

But when disaster strikes at her high school reunion, shes the only one left alive who witnessed that fateful night so long ago…Or is she? Who else couldve known about the pact and who would want Pete and his co-conspirators dead? As the investigation heats up and the death toll rises, Ivy is forced to decide if confessing the truth is really worth risking her own life.

Synopsis:

Ivy Griffith wants to bury the past once and for all . . . right alongside Joe's murdered body. Coming home to come clean ten years later, an ugly twist of events only intensifies the danger she's in.

Cheri Clay, November 5, 2007 (view all comments by Cheri Clay)
Popular, honor student Ivy Griffith went down the wrong path starting with dating Pete Barton basketball player and hanging out with his buddies Reg and Denny. As the fab four getting stoned was the normal way of life. Than one afternoon Ivy sat dumbstruck and stoned in Pete’s car as Pete strangled Joe Hadley classmate and teammate and Pete, Reg and Denny buried his body. The fab four made a pack to never tell what happened. Spinning out of control Ivy ran from home to college never looking back.

Ten years later thanks to seventy year old Lu Ramirez, Ivy has cleaned up her life, has been off drugs for three years and has a seven year old son Montana. Gramma Lu as Montana calls her lived next door and cared for Montana when Ivy was stoned and pulled Ivy back from the pit of self-destruction. But now Lu is dying and Ivy doesn’t know what else to do but go home to her parents even if it means facing the past.

Ivy’s parents welcome her home and take care of the arrangements for Lu after she dies and starts to help take care of Ivy and Montana. Pete keeps hanging around pressuring her to make sure she keeps the pact. Also in her life is Bill Ziwicki one time classmate and drug dealer for the fab four. At the high school reunion feeling pressured by Pete, Ivy agrees to sit with the fab four. Reg and Denny get very drunk and Ivy suggests Pete should take them to their room. While gone Ivy dances with Bill with a start of a romance. Later Ivy worries about Pete being gone for so long so Ivy and Bill go to the guys’ room to find all three have been murdered!

Bill and Ivy find themselves in the mist of a murder investigation and the police and FBI believe both murders are related and that Bill and Ivy are involved. And that is only the beginning…….

This awesome page turner was too good to put down! Not only is it a compelling story but you’ll learn about God’s unfailing forgiveness and grace. Between the pages is an awesome lesson of temptation and how sin leads to more sin. Author Kathy Herman has done an outstanding job of telling this story of suspense and intrigue. A perfect read for high schoolers and adults alike. Also included is a reader’s guide perfect for a reader’s group or even a Bible study as the teaching is that amazing. But what I really liked was the “Afterword”, a letter written by the author to the reader that will have you stopping and analyzing your own life long after you’ve finished this book. So sit back and enjoy this awesome spellbinding tale and be prepared the ending is amazing!
