What is heaven? What is hell?
Ellie lives with the fear that she is an abomination. An affront to God. If her Bible Belt community were to ever discover Ellie’s desires for the intimate touch of a woman, then her husband, pastor, friends, and neighbors would all despise and shun her. But by way of the World Wide Web, Ellie finds a kindred spirit in Lori Morris, a beautiful young woman with a hideous secret. Brought together by their lust, their shame, and a shared sense of hopelessness, Ellie and Lori agree to end their lives in a single night of sex, torture, depravity, and finally suicide in a luxurious hotel. But Lori has another agenda: to escape an oppressive force that could be God, or possibly the devil. In truth, he’s something far, far worse.
Just remember: He wants us broken.
