"Forsaken" is a harrowing and compelling tale of triumph over tragedy that will not easily be forgotten. Born on a Friday, Sophie Winters has always been a loving and giving child, who'd do anything for her family. Yet her father, Bill, has always seemed to resent her. For her mother's sake, Sophie learns to live with Bill's animosity - until the night he returns home drunk and forces himself upon her. Left pregnant and ashamed at seventeen, Sophie doesn't know where to turn. So when she meets the charming Ben Lewis and he offers her refuge at his mother's hotel, she accepts. Sophie's not the only pregnant runaway staying there and at first it seems that Ben and his mother are quite the good Samaritans. But there is little goodness in the Lewises' hearts! As Sophie begins to realise their dark intentions, a web of danger and deceit wraps itself around her. She knows if she is to survive, she will have to fight for all she's worth!
