Annie Marrow, a Jefferson Community College freshman, assumes that the handsome young man in a business suit is her father's new assistant. But this wrong assumption leads to her kidnapping and being held hostage in a beautiful manor somewhere in the Tughill Plateau of Central New York. For the first time in her life, Annie finds herself in a situation that tests everything she has been taught as a child and believes -- her faith in God, her emotions, and her Christian convictions. Will her faith stand up to the taunts and pressures imposed on her by her guards, which include Louis the abuser and Steven the charmer? And why is she here in the first place? Her parents are not wealthy. Does this have anything to do with her father's involvement in the pro-life movement?
