After Cat Majors' boyfriend, Ty, leaves her beaten and bloody on a Texas Hill Country road, Cat hides in the back seat of a pickup truck and is rescued by a Christian family. Although the Creekmores' beliefs and behavior are as foreign to Cat as if she'd been dropped on another planet, she feels safe with them. But Ty finds and kidnaps Cat, beating her viciously and leaving her for dead. Sky and family friend, Jesse, save her. Believing herself in love with Sky, Cat is determined to win him away from his wife. Meanwhile, Cat's younger sister, Dena, whom she has always protected, runs away with her best friend, Natasha, who is pregnant and being abused. Natasha's stepfather insists on an abortion and threatens to cut the baby out himself if she refuses. Without Cat's guidance, Dena has to rely on herself as Natasha and she struggle to survive a flash flood and danger from Texas Hill Country wildlife and heartless human predators. Will Cat's and Dena's desperation lead them to God-or abandon them in a pit of hurt and bitterness?

About the Author

Because my parents ran a roadside zoo, I've survived being mauled by an African lion, bitten by a poisonous snake and attacked by an insane miniature chimp. Fleeing childhood sexual abuse and two medically unsupervised backwoods abortions by the perpetrator, I lived under a bridge, painting signs in exchange for meals, and washing myself and my clothes in the river-even on the coldest days of winter.
What doesn't make you bitter makes you better. You really can't make lemonade without lemons.
And thank God, I've made the transition from atheist to Christian. My two favorite Bible verses are: in everything give thanks, and all things work together to good to them that love the LORD.
The worst day in my life was the day I lost my job; my mother died and I couldn't make plans to attend her funeral because my husband was sent home from the hospital to die; our sheepdog died, and my truck caught on fire in downtown San Antonio, Texas. Things could only get better!
Thanks to Jesus, they have! I'm now married to Alan McKean, also an author, with the best-selling The Scent of Time, The Scent of Home and The Scent of Eternity to his credit, all published by Black Rose Writers. We live in lovely Scotland with our rough collie, Angel Joy. My mystery-romance-suspense books Bridge to Nowhere and Bridge Beyond Betrayal have been released by Sunpenny Publishing. They are the first two in a series featuring forty-something Texan "Miz Mike," whose attempts to mind her own business are foiled by her motto: "never let an adventure pass by unmolested. I am also the author of the mystery-romance-suspense novel, Fear of Shadows.
