Gripping from start to end. Full of real life emotion. Makes you wonder how you would survive these circumstances! Did not want to put down until I finished! ~ Margaret T

"Thought this book was amazing. I am not into dark stories about kidnap
etc but as soon as I started to read I just couldn't stop. Very sad, heroic but
with a very bright ending. Brilliant, and would recommend to others." ~ A.Niriain


What would you do if someone obliterated life as you know it and stole your
future? Give up? Lie down and die? Fight back? Maim? Destroy? Even kill? How
far would you go to save self?

Stacy Freeman grew up in Long Beach, CA, a coddled LA Valley girl. Hers was an
idyllic world, absent of strife until, as a teen, she watched her twin sister succumb to a rare disease. Stacy vowed then and there to do everything she could to nurture
and defend life. She became a nurse, married her soul mate, Cory, and set her
sights on their future, dreaming of the day they would create life together by
giving birth to a child.

And then, while on a back-packing trip into the northern California wilderness,
her life and her dreams are changed forever. For five days she is imprisoned
in a look-out tower, physically and psychologically traumatized by the fire
tower's caretaker.

How Stacy converts abject fear into unrelenting courage in order to survive is her story.

Editorial Reviews

Melissa Brown Levine
In John J. Blenkush’s latest novel, Stacy’s Story, the lives of a young married couple are irreparably damaged and changed by one man attempting to cover up a crime. What begins as a two week hiking and camping vacation in Taylor Lake, California quickly turns into a nightmare. Love, survival, and retribution are the main themes of this tale of good vs. evil. In this book, Blenkush exploits the full range of the human experience, from abject fear to unrelenting courage.
