The Orphan Maker’s Sin
Fifteen years have passed since a car bomb blew up seven-year-old
Ella’s father. One minute her daddy was there. The next? He disappeared, leaving only a charred shell of a vehicle and a burnt hubcap clacking down a Turkish street. Gone. As if he never existed at all.
The percussion of her father’s violent death still ricochets in the present. Ella yearns for closure and peace from the emotional shrapnel embedded in her heart. Drawn back to Turkey—a place she swore she left behind—Ella seeks to solve the mystery of who killed her father—and why.
When she meets Murat, a handsome Turkish man, she almost hopes for a new beginning—until she discovers family secrets that torture Murat and shake Ella to her core. Will the war in her soul close her heart to receive or give love—or forgiveness?
Ella faces two choices. Stay anchored to a bitter past or seek a new ending. Can Ella move past old wounds? Or, is the damage too shattering, making healing impossible?
