There are most likely some errors in different places that I missed, even though I worked very hard to correct as many I could. I just grew tired and ran out of patience after proof reading and rewriting this novel over and over for many months after I finished writing it. With that being said, I hope you will enjoy my efforts to produce a story about the pain and anguish that can consume someones mind when they are having difficulty dealing with a specific trauma. My own personal experiences that inspired this novel will remain undisclosed to the general public for obvious reasons. Id like to thank all the readers of this novel with all my heart for giving my first novel a chance to entertain your senses.Christopher J.
