Original Publication Date: May 15, 2019

Born the beautiful daughter of a poor cobbler, Valynda Moore learned early in life that beauty was its own form of a curse in a world ruled by ruthless men who would use any means to take what they wanted. And the stakes were never higher than the night when one man went so far as to steal her very soul and condemn her to live eternity in the body of a living straw doll.

Now she has one chance to be human again. To have her soul restored to a flesh-and-blood body. But only if she betrays everyone she holds dear, and breaks every vow she’s made.

Or she can pluck the one piece of fruit she’s always longed to taste and become human in the process. But there’s just one small catch. Not only will her friends pay the price for her humanity, she will damn all of humanity in her place.
