Author Tina Hogan Grantabout this book: What would you do if you lost your way in life? If your sister simply vanishes and because you fear the turmoil in your own life, searching for her becomes impossible.

Tammy Mellows is living such a life. After leaving her birth country of England to move to America, she had high hopes of finding her sister and living the American dream. Will she find her sister?

She meets Steven, has his child and settles down. But Steven is not the perfect man that she thought he was. He has a dark secret that he has been keeping from her and because she only saw what she wanted to see, Tammy misses the signs that he is a heroin addict. When she finally faces the truth, it's too late. Her life is now consumed and dictated by his addiction. Out of fear she loses her identity and her own path in life.

She is unable to make any decisions of her own and becomes the silent and forgotten one.

A story based on true events, shows the journey of Tammy Mellows and what challenges she must face in order to gain back her life. It's an emotional roller coaster of sad and happy times that will pull at your heart strings and have you on the edge of your seat wondering what's going to happen next.

Anyone that is in an abusive relationship will learn from reading Tammy's story that their lives matter and they don't have to settle.
