Six years locked away from the world
Finally, after all these years Maddie finds her freedom. But is one ever truly free of their past?
It feels like she has woken from a deep slumber and the whole world has changed. She barely recognises her own reflection, everyone has moved on.
Nothing is the same.
The man she loved, who she thought was lost forever, is still alive.
Is this her second chance at life?
Maddie wants to go out in the world, everyone wants to hold her back.
Does she have the courage to move forward and find peace in her life, despite what others want from her? Only she can decide.
Tee Smith released her debut novel Collecting Scars in 2016. She always wanted to write professionally, but as it does, life got in the way and she only took up writing novels after she turned 40.
Tee lives on a small farm in Western Australia, with a host of animals, including two donkeys. As well as writing, she is also a nurse, wife and mother to four teenagers.
