Mayu. Mayu. Mayu. His whispered plea intertwines with a girl’s silent cry. Help. Help. Somebody help. Everywhere Mayu turns she can feel the unspoken cries of the suffering. No one else seems to notice those most in need — but Mayu is compelled to do something. When she meets seven-year-old Anna, whose eyes speak to the unthinkable abuses in her past, Mayu knows the only escape for this victim is more violence. Mayu must unearth a brutal courage she never knew she had. . . . Help. Help. Somebody help. Haunted by her audacity, she attempts to carve out a different life far away from Anna. But before long she discovers that her seemingly perfect new husband harbors secrets that threaten their marriage. As Mayu struggles to accept her husband and save her marriage, she is forced to redefine compassion — and recognize that love and violence are often intertwined.
