"A compelling reading experience"
Her wealthy parents Kara and Marsh Addison dumped Josee
Walker for adoption because her father did not want to
deal with the emotion of loving a kid. Two decades plus
later, twenty-three years old Josee has become a cynic,
clearly reflected in her work as an artist and poet. She
cares little if any about other people. Still Josee needs
to know why her biological parents dumped her. She
returns to her birth home in Oregon, but Marsh refuses to
meet with her while Kara desperately wants to see the
child she gave up though she loved her with all her heart.
While walking in the Willamette Valley, Josee finds a
canister containing a poison that can destroy the body and
the soul. Marsh's mother warns her that she has found
something evil and soon a malevolent being begins to creep
out of the shadows with plans to destroy the Addisons and
their rejected daughter. Knowing she must find a way to
defeat this malicious foe that she does not understand,
Josee needs to find the faith that she lost when her
parents dumped her because she needs a miracle to succeed.
This intriguing complex thriller grips readers from the
moment Josee finds the canister until she shows off her
latest tattoo. The story line is action-packed, and the
plot twists in ways that constantly surprise the audience
so casual readers beware. Though hints and clues are
interspersed throughout the tale, fans will not fully
realize what is happening until the final showdown.
Readers will appreciate this dark with a glimmer of light
