This bestseller from Josephine Cox tells a story of running away from a secret but longing to go home. Home is where the heart is – but it's also where the pain lurks… After a tragic accident involving his mother, and the disappearance of his father, young Davie flees his hometown of Blackburn, to escape the haunting memories of the worst night in his young life. With little more than the shirt on his back and a fierce determination to find his father, he sets off on a lonely, friendless road. Back home, those Davie has left behind wait anxiously; Kathleen, his childhood friend who has held a secret close to her heart, and Joseph, his grandfather whose guilt burns right to his soul. Will they ever see Davie again? Eventually, Davie finds a friend and a place to stay. Perhaps now his heart and mind will find peace. But his hopes are shortlived when Fate urges him to decide whether to keep running or go back and face his demons.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Josephine Cox is a writer that keeps you reading. Her novels are great for light reading and so the three novel package I downloaded was a well worth purchase. I especially enjoyed the character of Kathleen in Born Bad. Her tender, caring Irish personality was fun to read. Josephine transitions her characters by keeping suspense until the end. Very satisfying reads.
