Home Is In His Eyes
Summary

If you lived in the shoes of sixteen-year-old Emily Lawrence, you'd want to kill yourself.
Years and years of abuse have taken its toll on Emily, a victim of child abuse. After one week that is horrible than most, Emily decides to commit suicide. But a pan of boiling water and a burning, bloody fight with her stepfather forces her to make a split-second decision. Taking her most prized possessions, she runs away from home cut, bruised, and badly burned. Then, her world changes drastically whenever she is hit by a speeding car, but only to wake up hours later in the house of twenty-one-year-old Michael, an artist, and her savior. Love instantly strikes the two, fast, and uncontrollable. Suddenly, after a short time of nothing but pure joy and happiness and love, her now-perfect-world suddenly erupts into a world of confusion and fear as she learns two life-changing things. Not only that, but a short while after, Caslon is hot on his search for Emily.
Situation after situation puts life into a harder motion, and life becomes much more abusive and complicated than she thought it was supposed to be. Can they make it out of this alive?
