Charlotte Rowe spent the first seven years of her life in the hands of the only parents she knew—a pair of serial killers who murdered her mother and tried to shape Charlotte in their own twisted image. If only the nightmare had ended when she was rescued.
Trina Pierce was abducted as a baby and spent her first seven years with the killer couple who murdered her mother. They wanted to ‘train’ her to be just like them. After she was rescued from the clutches of the serial killers, Abigail and Daniel Banning, her nightmare should have ended, but her father saw fit to exploit her experience, through the tabloid press and the movie industry. That, together with a weird stalker who admired the Banning’s, gave Trina the incentive to escape and detach herself from everything her life had been and had become by going to live with her grandmother.
