Danielle went to school and became a Nurse and now works with children that have been abus...
Excellent psychological thriller in the true sense of the word.
wow...every time i think Lisa Gardner can't possibly top herself she does. LIVE TO TELL is scary in it's believability (but not nearly as scarily believable as SAY GOODBYE) and, at the same time, heart-wrenchingly sad--at least from the perspective of a parent.
