The Hurting by Lucy van Smit


The Hurting is a relational thriller that hooks you straight away, opening with a girl, Nell Lamb, hiking in the wilderness with a kidnapped baby. The story then flashes back in time, taking readers on the journey of how Nell ended up in her terrifying predicament. We learn about how she is dominated by her family, and she doesn’t believe in love…until she falls for Lukas, the heir to an oil fortune. But Lukas has his own dark agenda. How far is she willing to go for love?
