Ring around the rosy, pockets full of posies, ashes…ashes…we all fall down. For ten-year old Anna Stone, a childhood full of nursery rhymes and bedtime stories is a heartless work of fiction concocted merely to remind her of all she’ll never have. Plunged helplessly into the sinister, devastatingly cruel world of her mother’s mental illness… Anna must grow and mature in a home where pain and fear are her only friends… That is…until she meets fifteen year old Triston Roth; the one and only person in the world to love her enough to help her see past her fear; giving her the courage and strength needed to defy her family. Happy ending right? Not a chance. The moment Anna finally summons the courage to reach out for help is the one true moment when her world would disintegrate, leaving behind a wake of deception and destruction in the path of the legal justice system that was supposed to help her. For Anna…life is a war from which she cannot escape, her only hope being to become a living sacrifice in order to protect the young man whose only crime was his love for her. This True to life Romeo and Juliet, based on actual events, depicts the severity and cruelty of the phrase “Star crossed lovers” while beautifully encapsulating the love, hope and determination felt as Anna and Triston battle it out for their right to be free from abuse…for their right to be together.
