ABOUT THE BOOK
Chicago, Winter, 1891
Rachel is in danger. She s seen too much.
She creeps along the cement walls through the dank underbelly of the asylum. She d never planned to leave her quiet farm life, never thought she d find a place in the city, never imagined she d be in the kind of danger that would have her cowering in Dunning s cold, labyrinthine basement.
Jenny has finally found her place. After a childhood of abuse, she has friends, a real job, and her only wish is to give her adopted son the kind of life she never had.
A life of stability, without the risk and uncertainty of a father.
But when Jeremy, Rachel s brother, stumbles into their warehouse, asking for help to find his missing sister, Jenny s carefully constructed life begins to crumble.

This book is the second in the Portraits of Grace series and I have to admit that I was a little lost at first because I haven't read the first book, but I soon caught up with who was who and then everything seemed to make more sense. So, you could read this book as a stand alone but I'd really recommend reading the first one before you read this one.
This book is full of intrigue with a touch of romance woven throughout the story. It has a darker, almost Gothic, tone that really works. The author did such an amazing job describing everything that I could almost feel the cold and the fear down in that basement with Rachel. Definitely a page turner.
I'm looking forward to reading more in this series.
