‘“Here, let me clean that paint off.” She threw the liquid straight into Elfie’s face but released the bowl accidentally as she threw it causing the glass to smash against Elfie’s face and chest.’
Seven years after fleeing her home town of Mountain Valley in a final attempt to escape the bullying and beatings from Clara Jones and Hugo Bates during school, Elfie Winter, now the richest and most successful businesswoman in the world, returns home for her brother’s wedding a completely new person. Elfie no longer possesses the kind hearted nature and welcoming smile that once masked her face, in their place stands a cold, hard expression, memory filled scars and a vicious snarl.
Along with the love and help of girlfriend, Isabelle Mason, Elfie must face Clara on a daily basis after realising that her brother is marrying her sworn enemy. But can Elfie remain civil and bite her tongue for three weeks until the day of the wedding, or will the pressure prove too great so close to the big day?
